Recently restored, this beautifully finished 1961 Cresta PA has been thoughtfully modified for the track but could equally be used as a fast road weekend car. Definitely one for the shrewd buyer. The extensive upgrades include all the right parts for engine, drivetrain, brakes and suspension, making this PA a very quick and competitive race-ready machine.
Reserve is set at a fraction of the build cost making this a very smart buy if you are looking for an inexpensive entry for Goodwood (this car has previously been accepted for the Revival races), for hillclimbs or just a Sunday car for spirited drives.
