Great car, beautifully presented and all details correct. I hope you drive it enough thereby having to clean it again to keep this high standard. Congratulations!

ABSOLUTELY STUNNING, love the 72 spoke chrome wires with all that red. I had 3 roadsters (2 still in my barn) and 1 GT. Still have an OEM new (giant) leather steering wheel and a chrome roll bar in the barn. Question- did the UK version not have the double brake boosters/canisters? I see the bracket for the one on the right inner wing, and/but the one where the export car had the pump n pedals is the place for this car's booster; was this the common sense upgrade, or did the UK enjoy the more practable solution (with a proportioning valve)? Hot-rodded (4.2 liter, supercharged) 69 roadster BRG, stock 68 roadster white, stock 69 roadster NSS (no-sell silver), and the stock 69CGT primrose.

Cannot believe my eyes! It looks better than a brand new car. The owner should be proud to own this car. If I own this car, I will never take the car out for drive and it is only for show room!Thanks to the proud owner for sharing this picture.
