Evaluation: Excellent paint and chrome. The interior is smooth and unblemished. The gauges are crisp and bright. The inside of the top boot is even upholstered! Impressively and accurately restored to high standards with only 46 km (29 miles) showing on the odometer since it was completed.
Bottom Line: Impossible to fault in any meaningful way, an outstanding example of a rare model of which only some 88 were built and about 30 survive. Having acknowledged that, this declined high bid is a record price and would have been well over $400,000 had it sold and commission been added, an amount that should have been ample to see it find a new home.
