|Model History||Auction sales research||Specifications||Body styles and Chassis Data|
This roadster was purchased by its present owner on June 26th of 1976 from Eric Cameron, who was then liquidating his friend's Los Angeles estate. The car was kept in static storage for another three decades. In 2005, a restoration began, utilizing all the original alloy bodywork, chassis and suspension components.
Upon completion, the car was campaigned in UK vintage races, participating in everything from VSCC events to several appearances at the prestigious Goodwood Revival.
In 2011, the car was offered for sale at the Gooding & Company auction where it was estimated to sell for $275,000-$350,000. As bidding came to a close, the car had been sold for the sum of $203,500 inclusive of buyer's premium.
