Body and Paint:
Most of the Speedsters were delivered in California. This because of the (financial) climate. Because of this climate some cars are so well preserved. This one is the prefect example of a real “ Californian Survivor” All original floors, panels and no rust! The gaps and panelfitting is like it came out of the factory. The car was repainted in its early life. A color change from the rare color Silver to an dark green metallic.
The paint job was done in the seventies. It is old and has patine all over it. In its very early life one owner liked the twin grill Rear decklid. An Original single grill decklid comes with the car.
