The current owner has had the car for 20 years & during that time has embarked upon a stem to stern restoration. There are masses & masses of bills showing the work undertaken which run to many tens of thousands of pounds. The engine is completely rebuilt & is still being run in. The paint is new, as is the interior upholstery. The chassis has been totally rebuilt as has the ash frame in the areas where it needed to be renewed. A mohair hood is fitted along with a matching hood bag.
The car comes with a full tool kit located in the fold out platform of the capacious boot. The Walnut is in beautiful condition being well polished without being overly glassy as one so often sees incorrectly done on modern restorations.
This is a very rare car, being a one off & in impeccable condition. It benefits from being very useable, either closed, open or part open in the sedanca position.
