The molds were taken from an original 289 FIA car.

The original owner and the second/current owner are close friends and the current owner was involved in every aspect of specifying and ordering the car.

The following options were selected:

Red with Wimbledon white stripes

Black leather interior and side pockets

Convertible top. Tonneau cover. Front bra

Hood scoop and fender louvers

Sun visors and wind wings

Halogen road lights. detachable

Chrome "quick-jack" pads AND chrome bumpers

The current owner bought the car from his friend in 2004 with 1364 miles on it. This car is one of the most well-cared for automobiles you will ever find!!! Every piece of paperwork has been collected since day one and since 2004 a complete and impeccable service and maintenance history/receipts is included. As you can see in the photos. this car is immaculate and needs nothing! Just over the last month. the owner spent $1000 in a new hi torque starter. battery and had all cables soldered for superb connections.  The exhaust (mufflers) were redone in 2012. Tires were replaced in 2010 at 4256 miles.

The paint is original and has fantastic luster. with only a few random chips. as expected on a vehicle that is 26 years old.  

The car comes with the chrome plated quick-jack pads. headlights screens. tonneau cover. soft top. and front end bra. as originally ordered. The radio head-unit was removed. is however included. The amp and speakers are still in their original location.

Please email me with any questions you may have. Many more pictures and video available. Can take any specific pictures you may request also.

This car is sold AS IS. WHERE IS! Buyer is responsible for shipping.  Personal inspections are encouraged.

This vehicle is for sale locally also. We reserve the right to cancel this listing at any time.

Thanks for your interest.
