SUMMARY

The Warwickshire Collection - This car has formed part of an extensive collection of British and European Classics and your inspection is encouraged.

DESCRIPTION

  • In recent years, this car has formed part of a large collection and has received little or no use, so an element of recommissioning is to be expected. Some of these cars do start, run and drive. Each car has a condition report, however they are all sold as seen
  • A decent example of one of France's best exports
  • Traditionally presented in solid black with a grey needlecord cloth interior
  • In the UK since 1973 and in the Collection since 2014 with just one other UK keeper
  • It's clearly been the subject of a restoration but no evidence as such in the history file
  • There are some photos of the engine having been stripped in the file so we assume this has been rebuilt. The engine bay would benefit from further detailing
  • Showing 77,149km on the odometer
