It is not known who is the & rsquo; idea of ​​this singular transformation, or who & rsquo; realized, or when ... there was no information about it on the ad ...

It s & rsquo; therefore d & rsquo; a coupe with seat spider in the trunk, the body of the sedan d & rsquo; n & rsquo origin, has not been affected, the length remains the same, the work of coachbuilder was to back the & rsquo; interior to & rsquo; extreme to give a long length to cover ...
This has added some details like wire wheels and side exhausts, is strongly assumed that the sponsor wanted to ape the flaming cars years 30, see make a kind of replica of how exotic cars neoclassical Clenet, room, Excalibur, Spartan, rt with…etc. years 80.
