vehicle descriptionThe first of only 4 built, this exceptional Estate Wagon is finished Sand over Sable with Tan hides as when it was featured as the 1959 New York Show Car. This is the much photographed automobile shown in many publications with Harold Radford himself at the wheel.
In 2003 it was the subject of a no effort spared, painstaking restoration at which time original "new old stock" air conditioning was installed and the custom built gun case per the Radford Countryman options list was fabricated. Shown for the first time ever at the 2004 Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance commemorating the 100 year Anniversary of the Company, it captured the 2nd place Class Award even though in the opinion of many it was superior in condition and execution to the 1st Place Winner (also a Vantage Motorworks restoration). It also took a RROC Concours Class Award the following week at the national meet in Monterey, California and won its class at the 2007 Naples, Florida Concours d'Elegance.
This mechanically superb, completely refurbished and well maintained example will likely require no further attention to any aspect for years to come. Complete books and tools accompany the vehicle along with the extensive factory history, restoration files and FIVA certification certificate.
This vehicle, still in Concours condition, may be viewed by appointment in Florence, Italy.
