Stripping Down

Car stripped down to bareshell. Visually inspected the car appears mainly rust free, but having had a hard life on the race tracks with many later modifications. We will be returning this car to its 1965 debut race season specification and to comply with FIA App.K so any later modifications will need carefully removing and all original detailing needs reinstating whilst at the same time balancing the importance to retain chassis originality.
