Delivered new to Mexican collector and gentleman racer Efrain Ruiz Echeverria, it competed in the gruelling 1953 Carrera Panamericana, recording a strong top 10 finish.

Exhibited at a number of the world’s leading events, including the prestigious Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance, it returned to competition at the 2004 Monterey Historic Races at Laguna Seca, California, and is now ready for a stylish new owner.

“Gentleman Racer” would look pretty damn good on your resumé, you must admit.
