Auctioneers Notes


What can I say, this is possibly the best Mexico in the market today.  The restoration has been carried out to the highest standard.  The detailing under the bonnet is second to none.  She has lots of period up-dates just to whet your appetite, the rear suspension has gas shocks with anti trap bars.   There are so many great things with this car, you must come and view.  Serious buyers please, ring for appointment to view.
