Originally a US car and imported into the UK in 1998. It was subject to restoration by Andrew Brodie and David Yeo around 2011, including the installation of engine modifications to improve reliability and was subsequently featured in Classic Cars in 2014, a copy of which is included in the file. Since the vendor's ownership in 2015, he advises that he has regularly used the car including several trips to France. Following his purchase, additional works were carried out by SM specialists, BL Auto's, to enhance the drive even further, these include ultrasonic cleaning of the carbs, ignition overhaul, HT leads installed, new American A/C pump installed, new offside front hub fitted, replacement steering rack and upgraded period stereo with modern internals and new speakers. The original seats, that had been stored for many years, were repeatedly applied with leather treatment and after eighteen months were "brought back to life", enabling the owner to re‑instate them in the car following the removal of the vinyl seats currently fitted. The history file includes a full restoration photographic album, details of the restoration work undertaken and list of upgrades, a folder of invoices dating between 2011 and 2017, one MoT from 1998 and from 2011 to present, tax discs for 2012 to 2014 and original owner's manuals. Mileage recorded at 62,500 miles.
