"CF 59 is a late RHD car, first registered in 1971, a coupe, with the later dash, 8 track stereo, no air con, and it is fitted with an auto box, which sadly refused to kick down when I drove it. Kickdown cable needed adjusting I suspect - certainly nothing major. It needs kickdown - badly - bit of a slug without.


The car, and I assume all of them, corners well and very accurately, it does hitch up its skirts and move if down shifted (manually here) and it feels tight and secure. Does require a bit of a heave to stop it quickly though, mind you my Ghibli did too. It is, as I hoped, comfortable and I think it would make an absolutely spiffing Grand Tourer - what.


The car is in Great Britain and the owner has asked to remain anonymous.

Finished in Flash Red with black leather upholstery, this particular example is described by the vendor as being in "very good" condition with regard to its engine, automatic transmission, electrical equipment, chassis, bodywork, paintwork and wheels / tyres (though, he rates the interior trim as "average"). Said to have had just "two previous owners" and to have only covered 57,000 miles from new, 'JYY 779J' was reportedly treated to "rebuilt sills in late 2007" and a respray earlier this year. While, other recent work is understood to have seen it benefit from a "new radiator, replacement cylinder head gaskets, new master cylinders and overhauled calipers". Riding on wire wheels, this ultra-rare and stylish GT is offered for sale with MOT certificate valid until December 2008.
