Original. Benefitted from a respray and a recent detailing, the Cashmere Beige paintwork and bodywork are in good condition although some minor blemishes still exist. The removable Targa top panel is also in good shape.

All four Fuchs wheels now look immaculate with no kerbing or scuffs after intense polishing work done. Inside, the black leatherette presents well, showing light wear and creasing to the front seats, along with some mileage-correct wear to the shifter and steering wheel. There are no known electrical faults with the car.
