Vehicle History


Original RHD but no records of where it has been apart from imported to UK by Marksdanes Classics in 1988 from USA (Louisiana). Full documentation after, unable to trace history 1964-88 apart from Heritage Certificates. Suspect, Car was purchased by serving US Military and brought to US. Definitely original RHD.
