Maybe not ready for Pebble Peach but certainly a beautiful, well preserved example of this relatively rare sports car.
Excellent rust and bondo free body, new red paint, very good original chrome and trim, excellent interior, v.g. top, new tonneau, excellent chassis and floor pan, just finished a lot of prep work.........dropped the sump and checked main and rod bearings (like new), very clean engine bay, brakes just done, new shocks, original AM-FM radio plus a modern stereo/CD located under the glove box, electronic ignition, very clean trunk, overall, a very nice car.
I guess one of the best things about this car is, whether on the road or the show field, you don't seem many of these cars. And there is a certain enjoyment about being different from the others. With its 96hp 1600cc engine and all synchromesh transmission, performance and driving are similar to contemporary English sports cars. But a bit more refined.
And worth looking at.
