Restored out in California in 1996. It was part of a multiple car collection the last 15 years. He kept it stored and rarely used it. So it's not brand new but I can tell it was restored right. It still looks amazing!

I, Jay Grams, take pride in personally writing the descriptions for virtually every car for about the last 30 years now. A significant amount of effort goes into fact checking. What I am offering is my professional impression of the vehicle.
Our salesmen are happy to assist with descriptions and making sure your questions are answered. One great suggestion is letting us do a walk around video that explains the car's condition in detail.
