The vehicle offered here is rare in Germany and in other European countries, this model is currently offered in the USA for over
$24,000, and in far worse condition.

In my opinion, this car is in very good condition.
A lot of work has already been done on this car in preparation for German inspection (TÜV), all brakes are new, and it has a new fuel pump (NOS).
There’s not a lot of work left to be done, however, the car needs new tyres, a hazard light system, headlights and indicators and some other minor work. As far as I could see, the bodywork has no flaws except for one small hole, and it’s in very good, sound condition, the sheet metal is not thin like in today’s cars. The instruments are original and very beautiful.

The vehicle has a powerful V8 flathead engine with a capacity of 3,9 l or 4,2 l respectively, which will easily go uphill in 3rd gear without permanent shifting. One very pleasant aspect for me is the gearshift on the steering wheel. The hood is operated electrically, and there’s a new hood in the trunk.
When you look at the pictures of the underbody, you will see that everything is fine.
Since I’m moving to a smaller location, I have to sell some of my cars, because my children have no interest in classic cars. That’s why I have to get rid of them - unfortunately.

The vehicle can be viewed and picked up in 88069 Tettnang, Germany.
