The general condition of the car is very good for a “driver” car but it’s not a concours. The fiberglass body has no bumps or cracks and the paint has a bright red Roman Red original. The chrome parts are in a magnificent condition and the unique “dog paws” of the windshield, almost always damaged are in this case impeccable and without defects.The interior upholstery with the original color, pattern and material in the dashboard , the carpets and the door panels are still in very good condition with patina. The top is in white and all the frame and vinyl are OK.

The car options included the very attractive 4-speed “Syncromesh” gearbox. The brakes, the suspension, the steering and the complet chassis are in excelent condition giving a confident , powerfull and easy handling for a 58 years old sport car.
