CGF 709 has obviously seen considerable restoration and presents well. Of special mention, the paint work is finished in a most distinctive and vibrant shade of blue which certainly makes it stand out from the usual sombre shades associated with this period of automotive history. The interior has a pleasant appearance, being a combination of both new and original materials to create a charming driving environment.
