With that low windscreen and coupe like convertible top. It looks sporty and fast and can still transport 4 people comfortably. And with the very clever construction of the top it always has a very nice stretch to it. The two-tone paintwork is in excellent condition and suit the car. Also, the chrome parts are in a very good condition and those big P100 headlights! I guess back in the days those where sending a signal to other drivers that somebody important where coming up behind you. Those very big wheels have been shoed with new rubber recently. And the recently fitted soft top has a very good stretch to it.
