Classic Car Auctions says:

A very well maintained V8 with only 39,700 miles...


  • History file shows fastidious maintenance carried out by this and previous custodians
  • Recent work includes engine removal to fit a new oil pump, air-con compressor, and wiring harness
  • Subtle upgrades to suspension to aid ride and handling and larger brake discs, front and rear
  • Deep lustre to paint with well-appointed cream and red piped leather interior
  • The V8's lusty performance was more than a match for Ferraris of the same era
