  • Engine No. 813 417
  • Gearbox No. 84 208 (741/80C)

The car has been a very-well-kept example retaining many of its original parts. The car matches its Certificate of Authenticity completely, including its engine, transmission, interior and exterior colors. The wheels are properly date-coded, including the spare, and have been beautifully re-chromed.

Its matching numbers engine is receiving a complete rebuild in-house and is being built to stock SC-spec with correct Solex 40PII carburetors. The matching-numbers 4-speed transaxle has been completely overhauled including new bearings and synchros.

Following taking the car all the way down to bare metal, the car went through extensive metal work performed to show quality. The car was placed on our rotisserie and every part of the body was completed to our highest standard. The metal was then sealed and the car was primed and extensively blocked to arrow straight. Gaps and panel margins were worked to factory specifications. The car was then finished in its correct glasurit Sky Blue exterior.

The undercarriage was completely restored to concours standard. After the tub was taken to bare metal and any imperfections corrected, the undercarriage was properly re-undercoated and sealed. Then, every nut and bolt was correctly re-plated and all control arms were refinished to give the car its outstanding presentation underneath. The car’s anti-roll bars were restored and the car received all new bushings and bearings throughout. A new set of of correct Sachs (the successor to Boge) dampers were installed.

Since the photos of the car were taken, the window frames have been completed and installed. The engine is in its final assembly stage. The car is nearing completion and will be ready for delivery in approximately 2 months. The car is available for immediate purchase- most of our completed restorations sell quickly!

As with all of our complete restorations, the car will come with a bumper-to-bumper 1-year warranty from the date of delivery.

Don’t miss this opportunity to own a CPR-certified concours-level restoration.
