History:
Christoph bought the split window back in 2009. The car was initially delivered to Portugal and was restored by its former owner. Christoph drove it until 2011 as a daily driver in the summer. The '53 was locked away after that due to a lack of time. Priority was on the course of studies. The current plans are major modifications to the engine and chassis.
