Fully restored over an incredible 17 year period, the car retains its original numbers matching 3.4L straight 6 engine and 4 speed gearbox. The interior has been fully re-trimmed in high quality ‘Nutmeg’ leather which suits the cream bodywork to a tee. Mechanically the car is as it left the factory bar a header tank to help with cooling and a brand new stainless steel exhaust. The car is a pleasure to drive, the gearbox gives smooth slick changes and even though almost 65 years old the engine feels powerful and responsive even by today’s standards.
