Under long term ownership for several decades, this car is a low mileage example having covered a scant 66,000 miles. It is a very early example with single master cylinder having been registered first in January of 1956. We will be properly photographing it during the next few weeks once we have a chance to visit it in its garage in Austria where it resides as part of a small collection of iconic high end cars.
The car is finished in its original colour of Midnight blue with the paint having been redone to a very high standard a few years ago. The interior is original leather & throughout & again is in very fine order as is the burr walnut woodwork.
Mechanically the car has been maintained wihout regard to expense & is in superb condition driving simply beautifully. Currently on Austrian Plates the car may be driven on them to its new home or alternatively we can UK register it for the new owner & deliver it by trailer from the onwers garage in Austria.
Stand by for Further information.
