Owner Notes: According to the existing information, this car came to Portugal in May 1979 with German diplomatic plates and was used by the German embassy.... In December 1979, the car was given Portuguese diplomatic plates (CD-22-52). In 1984, the car was given normal Portuguese license plates (NG-42-46), which it holds today. Then it was sold to a Portuguese person who it for a few years, then stored it in a garage until the beginning of 2015 when I bought it. Since then, I have been restoring it, but it's mostly cleaning and normal maintenance. The car has 101450 kms on the odometer, sustained by the maintenance logs. As far as I know, paint, roof, and all the interior is original.Show More
