Original Southern California car ordered by a family member of the actor Mel Ferrer and Actress Katherine Hepburn. Female owner from 1970 – 2012. The car was parked on a street, someone clipped the rear corner while turn a corner. The owner did not have classic car insurance, the standard carrier chose not to fix the very fixable damage and wrote it as a total loss. By now the owner in her 70’s decided to move on. I took on the task to make it right again and proceeded with the following: Please note the car stipped down to the metal. Look closely at the bottom of the fenders and door etc, Zero rust. It was the painted with the original factory Glasurit pint, yes, it is the factory burgundy color. Just about every seal has been replaced, new carpet, all window trim, rocker trim and engine lid trim were shipped to WI to a 30 year trim specialist straightened polished. The dash was restored by one of four companies in the US that property uses a vacuum seal process that allows for the a flawless presentation. All seat, door panels, gauges are original so some hints of wear yet all original. New bumper ends, new turn indicator lenses, new tail light lenses. The rims were taken to a shop that only restores Porsche rims. There they were restored and polished. Mechanically, the car is sound. You can get in this car and drive it all day long. The engine was serviced by the previous owner with 6000 dollars of receipts and approximately 14,000 miles since then. The engine transmission drive free of any issues. My German born mechanic recently noted how well this car drove. I had the original Solex Carburators disassembled and cleaned. I will say they are moody occasionally and sometimes give a bit of a kick
