Evaluation: 48 years continuous ownership by Alan K. Pray, represented as the original engine and gearbox and showing 92,678 km (57,587 miles). Excellent chrome and paint with some polishing swirl. Very good upholstery. Old undercoat in the wheel wells and on the chassis. 2019 mechanical restoration by Bob Smith Coachworks. Spotless fully and accurately restored engine compartment. Right wind wing frame chrome needs attention but nothing else does.
Bottom Line: The present Giallo Solare livery is at least the third color change from 10987’s original Celeste blue and is both attractive and subtly distinctive from the more common Giallo Fly. Considering the scope (and likely the expense) of the recent mechanical restoration the result here is realistic for the seller and a sound value for the new owner.
