Chassis no. 1321. Ice Blue over beige leather. 3929/320hp V-12, 5-speed, chrome spoke Borrani wire wheels, Avon tires, power windows.

Evaluation: Road grimy engine compartment and chassis. Sound paint with a small dent and door chip on the left side. Scratched driver’s side window. Good older upholstery, dash and gauges. The wire wheels are good but aging. Sound chrome except for scratched windshield and rear window trim. Stored since acquisition in 2008, with all the neglect that implies visible on the car. A sound driver but showing its age and in need of serious attention after 14 years in storage.

Bottom Line: Seriously discounted for its age and a decade of neglect. It’s not a bad car, it’s just ignored and overlooked and will need boxes of (expensive) belts, hoses and suspension joints before it is safe or minimally reliable to drive. The Monaco bidders (and Bonhams when estimating it) left lots of headroom for the anticipated costs and this result is appropriate to its condition.

Condition definitions
Condition #1: Concours
Condition #1 vehicles are the best in the world. The visual image is of the best vehicle, in the right colors, driving onto the lawn at the finest concours. Perfectly clean, the vehicle has been groomed down to the tire treads. Painted and chromed surfaces are mirror-like. Dust and dirt are banned, and materials used are correct and superbly fitted. The one word description for #1 vehicles is “concours.“
Condition #2: Excellent
#2 vehicles could win a local or regional show. They can be former #1 vehicles that have been driven or have aged. Seasoned observers will have to look closely for flaws, but will be able to find some not seen by the general public. The paint, chrome, glass and finishes will all appear as excellent. No excessive smoke will be seen on startup, no unusual noises will emanate from the engine. The vehicle will drive as a new vehicle of its era would. The one word description for #2 vehicles is “excellent.“
Condition #3: Good
#3 vehicles could possess some, but not all of the issues of a #4 vehicle, but they will be balanced by other factors such as a fresh paint job or a new, correct interior where applicable. #3 vehicles drive and run well, but might have some incorrect parts. These vehicles are not used for daily transportation but are ready for a long tour without excuses, and the casual passerby will not find any visual flaws. “Good” is the one word description of a #3 vehicle.
Condition #4: Fair
#4 vehicles are daily drivers, with flaws visible to the naked eye. The chrome might have pitting or scratches, the windshield might be chipped. Paintwork is imperfect, and perhaps the body has a minor dent. Split seams or a cracked dash, where applicable, might be present. No major parts are missing, but the wheels could differ from the originals, or other non- stock additions might be present. A #4 vehicle can also be a deteriorated restoration. “Fair” is the one word that describes a #4 vehicle.
Condition #5: Poor
Running, but battered, incomplete, and perhaps rusty.
Condition #6: Parts car
Parts car.
