Originally delivered through Fergus Motors in New York as a left-hand-drive example, research indicates that it was restored in the USA with a “remanufactured” chassis and ash wood frame from the factory in 1992. Later acquired by Stephanie Bennett-Smith from Thomas Rossiter, the car formed parts of the Orin Smith collection sold in 2017 where it was acquired by the consignor, entering the V&S Collection.
