No reserve

Carte grise française

- Remarquable état d'origine, moteur d'origine
- Deux propriétaires seulement depuis 1973 !
- Superbe sellerie d'origine, préservée par un passionné exigeant

Vendue neuve dans le Nord, la voiture que nous présentons était immatriculée 619 NH 52 en novembre 1973. A la fin des années 1970, elle est restée entreposée dans le château de son propriétaire, parmi d'autres voitures de prestige. C'est là qu'elle est un jour tombée sous les yeux de l'actuel propriétaire qui, alors âgé d'une trentaine d'années, a réussi à en faire l'acquisition. Ce dernier, passionné de mécanique réalisait son rêve et débutait une importante collection. Il a procédé à une révision complète et, depuis, vit une véritable histoire d'amour avec ce coupé. Le moteur, qui est d'origine ainsi que sa culasse, a été refait il y a 6 000 km et la boîte Moss, fonctionne bien. D'un point de vue carrosserie, la voiture est incroyablement saine, comme en témoigne une inspection attentive, jusque dans le logement de roue de secours. Les ouvrants sont bien alignés et le capot semble n'avoir jamais été restauré ou modifié. La sellerie a été conservée d'origine : dans un état rare, elle présente quelques coutures défaites, mais le cuir affiche une patine de belle qualité, tout comme les garnitures et le superbe tableau de bord.
Un voile de peinture a été appliqué il y a une dizaine d'années, la seule entorse à l'origine étant la présence de rassurants freins Cooper Craft. Aujourd'hui, ce coupé en remarquable état d'origine affiche 81 000 km. Il est à l'image de son histoire, qui ne compte que deux propriétaires soigneux depuis 1973 et constitue une opportunité unique !



French title
Chassis n° 886 096
Engine n° R5632-8

- Remarkable original condition, original engine
- Just two owners since 1973 !
- Superb original upholstery, preserved by a committed enthusiast

Sold new in the north of France, the car on offer was registered 619 NH 52 in November 1973. Towards the end of the 1970s, the car was stored away in the owner's château, alongside other prestigious cars. It was here that the current owner, then in his 30s, first laid eyes on it, and decided to buy it. Being passionate about engineering, he had started to assemble his own collection. He carried out an extensive service of the car that was the beginning of a full-scale love affair with this coupé. The engine, including the cylinder head, is original, and was overhauled 6,000 km ago. The Moss gearbox works well. Cosmetically, the body is extremely sound, as can be verified from a careful inspection, through to the spare wheel compartment. The doors are well aligned and the bonnet appears never to have been restored or modified. The original leather upholstery has been conserved and is presented in a rare condition, with one or two faults in the seams but displaying a lovely patina. The trim and superb dashboard have the same attractive patina.
The paintwork was refreshed some ten years ago and the only departure from originality is the reassuring presence of Coopercraft brakes. Today, this remarkably original coupé has just 81 000 km on the clock. Its history is in evidence, with just two careful owners since 1973, making this a unique opportunity!
