Having been ‘found’ in 2017, a thorough recommissioning
was carried out by ourselves in the same year, including a
precautionary suspension strip and renewal of the braking
system and major service. In 2019 we rebuilt all the
convertible roof hydraulic rams.
There have been two UK owners, the last of whom has put
around 3000 miles on the car. It was initially discovered with
just 2500 miles from new. The car was subject to a seven-

colours. It is a very rare and desirable car indeed.
