Note: it has come to my attention that a false narrative has been spread by an individual who had previously tried to acquire this car. Among other spurious remarks, they have made the mistatement that no Series 1 cars are Left Hand Drive. This is false as two examples are known to exist. Also they have spread the rumor that this car was converted after a wreck. This is patently false, as the car was documented in 1979 as LHD before it's restoration was started, while it was in a non running condition. It has never been a major collision to my knowledge. If there are any questions regarding the car's provenance, I welcome conversation via email or telephone.
