No history with the exception of the Original Bill of Sale. Marti Auto Works Deluxe Report. Original Owner's manual. We have the NOVA certificate confirming all import taxes are paid. This fabulous car is in amazing original condition with a (believed genuine) 32,000 miles and, apparently, has never had any paintwork in 49 years. It was part of a private collection in Pennsylvania. I bought it from a gentleman who had owned it for the past 10 years and used it regularly.
