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.
