Survivor! Original engine, paint, and interior, never restored or rebuilt. Incredible condition for an 82-year-old. This car has never been rained on! Recently appraised at $42,250.00 for the US market. I am the 3rd owner. The second owner purchased the car in 1974.

None of the "upgrades" and conversions normally found:

  • Original engine - never rebuilt
  • Original paint
  • Original mohair interior. Incredible condition for its age.
  • Original 6V electric system
  • Original oil bath air filter
  • Original tube tires (with spare inter-tubes)

Owner's manual, shop manual, journal, and complete files included.

Trophies and plaques from car shows included if you want them.

Some parts have been replaced over the years.

All receipts and documentation maintained since the original owner.


  • There are two small dings on the top of the left rear fender. (Pictured)
  • The paint on the top of the hood is faded. (Pictured)
  • There is a blemish in the center of the trunk lid where the license plate was unfortunately re-located by the original owner. (I put it back to original)
  • There is a turn signal switch installed by the original owner. (Can be easily removed)
  • The paint has shrunk over the years and there are small stress cracks in the paint where the body/bonnet connections are made. (Pictured)
