Saleroom Addendum

*Please note that given this car’s extensive period-racing history and four decades in the Dovaz collection, the initial restoration performed in the late 1990s included the replacement of exterior panels with a conscientious effort to retain the car’s inner body structure. The car retains its original aluminum body structure, several inner panels, as well as its original doors and rear lid, as described in the catalogue.
