I have been restoring and improving this car since purchased Jan 2013. It is a blast to drive, and values have been steadily on the rise for the past several years, according to Hagerty statistics.
Bottom line: this timelessly-beautiful car has numerous improvements, very well-sorted, ready for spirited drives or even long journeys.
