The car has previously been registered in both Switzerland & the USA with papers pertaining to both countries.To the exterior is traditional smoke green over sage green in perfect condition. The body is as good underneath as it is on top. The interior is stone coloured leather again in perfect order. The car is fitted from new with both a sunroof & picnic tables.Under the bonnet the car is similarly immaculate with a fully rebuilt engine in show condition. The engine starts readily & runs beautifully in complete silence. The Automatic gear box provides seamless smooth changes making the car a delight to drive. Rarely do we see better ones. A good histoy file comes with the car detailing heavy expenditure to put the car in tip top order after it arrived back on these shores along with relevant Swiss & American registration papers.
