Description

544Vermant9.jpg (63465 bytes)
Tulpen Rally 2001

This car is a "works" rally car replica built with a lot patience and eye for detail by a Swede, who did a lot of investigation for the Svenska PV-klubben regarding works PV's. This man, named Bengt W Andersson built this car to show condition, and never had the intention to use it for historic rally purposes. I bought the car from him in 2000, and then started using it for what it was built: historical rally's. 

Today the car is still in immaculate show condition, and this his how I want to keep it! The car's condition is often the opposite of other historical rally participants. It's equipped with all the original rally and tuning equipment from that period, such as Halda tripmaster & speedpilot, Marshall lamps + roof seeking lamp, Abarth sport exhaust, etc. Only modifications are historical sportseats but with an headrest, and 3-points seatbelts, because safety is very important in this kind of sport.
