SUMMARY

DESCRIPTION

  • With our vendor for the last four years but he knew the car for 14 years prior to his purchase

Receipts are on file totalling over £25,000 for this work with videography/documentation from the garage
  • In 2020, our vendor funded a full body strip, fibreglass restoration and respray in 2020 by Colour Code Motors in Redditch
