"Apart from start-up service and a minor overhaul, we find nothing that requires immediate action"


The car was renovated in the 1980s and has since been on display at Ivars Bilmuseum in Hoting. It was last driven in traffic for display in the early 1990s. Since then it has only been started on a few occasions. When registering in Sweden in 1987, the nameplate was read incorrectly and the model name Igualada Barna was entered in the registration certificate. Igualada Barna is probably the address of the first car owner in Barcelona.

The car is being sold to the museum, which is changing the exhibition and has therefore chosen to dispose of some vehicles.
