Vehicle has gone through an extensive re-manufacturing (restoration process, where engine, transmission, fuel injection pump, fuel and brake systems, suspension as well as all other mechanical components have been restored or replaced using original parts.
The vehicle has been restored through a rotisserie level process ensuring that the car was brought to bare metal exposing any possible rust and more importantly treating it to avoid future exposure to damage.The car is finished in its original factory DB903 Blue color utilizing original Glassurit primers and tints. The vehicle has been sorted locally here in the U.S. and is in perfect operating condition.
This vehicle is presently the car featured on the home page of Performance and Vintage Classicos website.
Present owner is an avid automobile collector from New Jersey. He has enjoyed this vehicle solely as a fair weather weekend use toy and kept it in a climate controlled garage on a lift and he wiped down the undercarriage with microfiber towels after each use.
The vehicle runs and drives beautifully and although its a pristine collector car, I would not hesitate to drive this car across country. All power option function 100% and it is still in pristine condition after seeing just 300 fair weather miles in the past 2 years.
The vehicle is presently located in Central NJ 07753.
Perspective bidders are encouraged to come see the vehicle in person.
Pre-purchase inspections are also encouraged at my facility and will have access to a lift if needed.
Vehicle has a clear New Jersey in the owners name ready for transfer.
