What a car! A complete work of art. Presumably it will hardly turn a wheel, but then it's every bit as good as a Picasso or Van Gogh sitting on a wall.

Unbeleivably desirable, perfect in so many ways, beautifully restored and presented for sale, accompanying sales pitch top class too!

That has got to be one of the most beautiful cars of all time, and with a power hood in 1936!
I have just bought 2 lottery tickets and crossed my fingers!

I find the rear quarter treatment rather fussy. Rather more Phoney and Flashy than the usual clean and discreet Farina lines but beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

I think a darker colour would suit it better and allow the chrome detailing to show off the shape better, but as you say, beauty is in the eye of the beholder, and I would be happy to have that in my coach-house!

Perhaps I'll just have to settle for a smaller version for 80!

There is so much thought and quality gone into every individual piece that it's incredible.
