One of only 50 ever built, it’s expected to bring in up to a million bucks.
The British sports car raced in the 1955 Sebring 12-hour race and the Nassau trophy road races in addition to various East Coast USA races in its early days.
Then it went to Maine and spent 40 years in a shed (happens).
Restored and reborn, it then competed in the 2009 Mille Miglia.
To sum up: a very well-bred Brit that’s spent enough time in America to be thoroughly de-sensitized to our uncouth ways…
