A few minor chips in the paint can be found at the front but overall the paint is in great condition. BRM wheels up front and genuine Michele wheels in the rear. A custom and functional rag top assembly was installed at the time of bodywork. Headlamps are by Speedway Motors and custom tail light round out the rear end.


A custom interior and carpeted trunk with converted high to low-back seats of an earlier design with a Sony blu-tooth deck and four Xplode speakers round out the inside.
