Evaluation: Raced in period in the UK and Germany. In storage from the 1960s until the 1990s, then restored for vintage racing. While set up for racing, it isn’t beat up or battle-scarred, and retains a full period correct interior. The paint, interior and underbody look very presentable. The gaps are uneven but they are probably better than they came from the factory. No photos of the underbody. A handsome, honest and tasteful vintage racer.
Bottom Line: This car sold for £85,500 ($112,954 at the time) at Bonhams’ Goodwood Revival sale in 2017, and the difference between that result and this is one is likely more due to the racing-focused crowd at Goodwood than any major change in Elite prices or any major difference in US vs. UK markets for these cars. Then again, the car’s desirable ZF gearbox may have been offset by it being a right-hand drive example. Those tend to come at a discount on this side of the pond. Regardless, this is still a strong result for a strong historic racer that will be lovely to drive and to look at.
