Highlights: • very rare Rudge centre lock rims ex works • wonderful original and preserved leather interior • only 2 previous owners in the USA • extraordinary colour combination ex works in ivory 608 with blue leather 333 • special high gloss paint & special upholstery ex works • HK-ENGINEERING delivery inspection included • matching numbers The car left the Sindelfingen plant on June 29, 1955, and was delivered to it's first owner in the USA shortly thereafter. He ordered the car in very special ivory color combined with blue leather interior and extremely rare Rudge center lock rims. The interior has been preserved to this day and presents itself in a charmingly patinated condition. The body has already been repainted over the years, but still impresses with a very thin paint finish. Chassis 5500418 stood abandoned in an airplane hangar near Albuquerque, New Mexico for several years before spending at least 32 years with the previous owner. The current mileage of only 78,970 miles can definitely be considered original. Secure a piece of automotive history with coveted matching numbers and desirable Rudge wheels from the factory. Before delivery we will include a large HK-ENGINEERING delivery inspection.
