The ORIGINAL Invoice (Bill of Sale),ORIGINAL Registration metal tag and ORIGINAL Dealers 12 page Sales Brochurecomes with the car. Please see them at the end of pictures.It retains its ORIGINAL engine (151666 which denotes being made in May of 1928),

it was repaired or replaced with NOS or New if no NOS could be found.
Nothing was overlooked and No Expense was spared. I have receipts totaling
