"Nice Frogeye with a few minor differences from the original, but that is part of its nice provenance."

Description

According to the current owner, this car was purchased new in the Dorotea area, where he had previously purchased it. The owner is a busy man who runs a transportation company and never found the time to enjoy the car or properly restore it, so it was garaged for the past 40 years and only driven a few thousand 1000km since he has owned it.

The owner recently dedicated some time to having the car repainted by a vocational school and the interior designed by a local furniture company. The car isn't completely original in many ways, but it has its own unique style and charm.

Condition

  • Mechanical condition:

    The engine starts easily, the gearbox feels precise, and the brakes and suspension are in good working order.

  • Interior condition:

    Not original, but similar material was used to re-upholster the interior. There are a few more meters, a different gear lever knob, and a few more buttons. Frequently, the style is slightly updated with modern features from years ago.

  • Exterior condition:

    A few small bubbles on classic places like the lower part of the A-pillars and a little at the top where the rear wing meets the bodywork, repainted a few years ago. It's worth noting that the bonnet is made of original sheet metal.

  • General condition:

    Basically, a nice Frogeye with its own charming features that is hard to come by in Sweden.

Auction information

General information about the condition of the vehicles .
  • At this auction, many vehicles have been included in car collections and have been stored (mothballed) for a long time. For this reason, they are described from a collector's perspective and may need technical reviews and maintenance service - oil, battery replacement, new tires, brake review, etc. - before they can be used. .
  • During the auction days information about a vehicle may be updated up to the day before the auction ends. When you bid at the end of the auction period - and also if you have made an earlier bid - we therefore ask you to read the descriptions carefully, in case something has been changed due to new information.
Important to know before placing your bids!
  • Once you have called in an item and the reservation price is reached we want you to deposit the entire purchase amount into our client funds account before retrieval can take place.
  • When you need to retrieve a called in object we want you to examine it carefully. If you consider that the item does not match our description you do not need to complete the purchase. In this case the deposited purchase sum and the entry fee are refunded.
  • If you do not examine the item on the spot the call charge will be debited, but you do not have to complete the deal.
  • If you make the entire purchase exclusively at a distance you have 14 days to cancel, but must return the item at your own expense.
  • Your shipping costs and other costs are not reimbursed when the right of withdrawal is exercised. Swedish court applies.
