|Built less Batt. Bought new 31/8/59 by Orlando for racing, driven by Ralph Sachs in many events.
After Orlando's death (1980) car laid in shed until 1985 when his daughter took it to local TAFE college to be restored.
This did not proceed and F.H. was able to purchase it.
Car was very original and may have travelled only 5000 miles.
Stripped for minor dent repairs and repaint, body NOT removed from chassis, interior trim and carpets are original.
