This is one of the early Mistral built as the seller says that this is the 56th cars out of Frua coachworks, it needs a full restoration but it seems solid.
Indeed this car has for sure stored well and in a dry climate because very few signs of deep rust can be spotted on the body: the cracked paint can be usually seen when a car has lived in a hot climate like this car is supposed to do. However, a lot of things are missing here.
The entire instruments cluster is missing: that’s not easy to find the proper Smiths instruments and when you do you have to be prepared to spend a lot of money; the door panels are “creative” but, most of all, there are a lot of parts of the engine (and its ancillaries) which must be found as they’re missing here.
