History:

 

The original owner purchased this Birkin chassis in June of 2002. It began its original assembly sometime between June 2002 and mid-2005. At that point the project was abandoned due to the owner's health issues. It had been garaged and untouched until September 2014. The car was then sold back to the original Birkin dealer in September 2014 from the initial owner. The car was represented to the dealer by the original owner as a “zero miles” car.

 

Current:

 

I purchased the car in October 2014 in an “as-is” condition from the dealer. as they received it from the original owner. After purchase I immediately began the process of disassembly of the car to confirm that the car was indeed a “virgin”. As a former motor sports competitor in Formula Fords and production classes. I have prepared many cars through the years. My inspections revealed that the majority of the various parts & components provided in the original kit were in new condition. Any marginal pieces due to age were replaced. I found the chassis and all its parts to be in excellent condition other than some original assembly bumps & bruises (paint dings) to the chassis. The body had been repainted from its original factory delivery spec. All the paint was removed from the main body. cycle fenders and rear fenders. The car has been professionally prepared & painted to its current scheme. DuPont “Pepper Grey Metallic” body & nose cone with black accent stripe around the nose & gloss black front & rear fenders.
