When viewed by a Bonhams specialist the car was seen to remain in fine order, its interior, engine compartment, trunk, paint, and bodywork all being immaculate, it is difficult to fault in any respect. Its detail specification extends from Borrani wire wheels with correct Borrani wheel nuts, restored Nardi steering wheel, Nardi shift linkage, the original spare wheel and jack in its original pouch and Marchal driving lights. The Plexiglas side and rear windows, so often scuffed and discolored are in excellent condition. Auction Source: 2009 Bonhams Exceptional Motorcars at Quail Lodge Resort
