Story:
I found this car on the internet at one of these days i just was looking around for some cool cars as usual, and then i just had to check it out. It looked so beautiful and already had a lot of stuff done by some previous owner, so i just had to get it. And that’s why i picked it up a few weeks later. Some research turned out it’s a very rare geniune Swiss market model and not a import-car. Now i’m restoring it completely and from a totally stripped down shell. I think you can’t learn more about cars as if you tear one down to the naked chassis and build it up from ground. And as i don’t have a clue about the technical things on cars i thought this would be a perfect project to get into it. And until yet i haven’t regretted it one little bit!
Check the blog for updates on the project 🙂
