It was reimported to Europe in 1967 and registered July 1. 1967 in Germany. In 1975 the initial German owner changed the engine from a 6-cylinder engine into an 8-cylinder V8 engine. altered the fender size for the additional larger wheels and the gear box from the original 4-speed into a 5-speed manual stick shift gear box with extremely precise and smooth gear shifts from ZF German Manufacturer. I bought this car in 1990 drove it since then only during the summer months during perfect weather. only a few hundred miles driven each year. During all other months it was comfortably garaged with strict maintained maintenance. Including yearly inspections of oil and fluid. brake and clutch controls as well as the required technical control check up at an official inspection organization every 2 years TUV. The engine was completely renewed in 1994. Since the renewal the car has driven approximately 19. 00 miles.
