Clearly, the finest concours / museum quality restoration of its kind. This Premiere Convertible is equipped with EVERY factory option offered on this one year only model. Restoration has been taken to the highest level of refinement to conform to the smallest of factory detailing and existing standards for Concours showing and quality.
Requiring more than six years in restoration, the vehicle received a full disassembly, to the core, and then rebuilt to factory specifications for authenticity, including color and finish. Every item, regardless if mechanical or cosmetic, has been restored to perfection or with N.O.S. parts re-finished to new. Nothing has gone un-noticed. From new braiding of the engine wiring harness and all electrical wiring, down to the powder coating of the seat springs.
Mechanical restoration included EVERY SYSTEM OF THE VEHICLE. This Premiere Convertible is Virtually NEW.
