    This must be one of the most beautiful Dinos currently available - colour combination par excellence (not that I am biased, you understand). Brave man putting this up for auction in current circumstances - I hope he gets a great result, but I would not be overly optimistic.

    Love the color! Looks like it has later E-Series front body work/bumpers, later wipers, RHD conversion, non-stock steering wheel among a few things I could see. It’ll be interesting to read the description once it’s available.

    And the dash seems to be upholstered in alcantara instead of mousehair. Plus one or two paint imperfections. but, hey, it is still one gorgeous piece of automotive sculpture!:):):)

    Not sure I see this car fetching that price in the auction somehow! In the current circumstances, either it will simply fail to meet the reserve, or some lucky / brave man will get a bargain - it really is a lovely car which I would be happy to have in my garage, were its twin not already there!
