steering wheel have been refurbished to give the new owner a proper environment to enjoy.

Details and History:

This car started life overseas when it was purchased by a member of the US Navy who was

stationed in Spain. He brought the car home when his tour was over and it remained in his

possession until his passing. Having covered only 35,400 Kilometers meant this car was an

ideal candidate for restoration. It retains nearly all of its original sheetmetal, including

the floorpans. Paint markings that were discovered during disassembly were recreated to

give this car the extra detail to set it apart from most. It has been restored following

concourse guidelines while also performing tasteful upgrades for trouble free ownership such

as; stainless brake and fuel lines, Weber carburetors and electronic ignition.  This car

performs flawlessly and is sure to give the new owner years of enjoyment
