Hi Brian, thanks for asking.

Got back yesterday after a couple of weeks in France only to discover that the front wheels have not been sorted and the new tyres not fitted. Disappointing to say the least as I was so looking forward to using her this weekend.

For the record, it was sold previously at the Monaco sale of Bonhams, 16 May 2005, for 52.900.
That was the sale in which the Cima collection was sold, including the metallic green B24 spider, and the Aurelia Giardinetta.
It has not changed much since then, and I wonder how many miles it has done in 4 years.
It is certainly a fine original and unrestored early Astura saloon, at an interesting price, but what do you do with it after purchase? Put it in your museum? Drive it? Restore it?
I just hope no one is going to think that he got a bargain price complete Astura chassis, which he can rebody with a rakish 2 seater open body of unknown origins to resell at great profit.
