Hi all :
Indeed, my beloved 1971 2800cs is now up on BaT.
Some of you will remember the car, (it was for sale on the forum 9 years ago).
I purchased the car in July 2010 from Al Mendez in Laguna Beach, CA (some of you probably know him or of him). He took 2nd place with the car in the 2009 West Coast Summer Concours. Since then I have done extensive mechanical work to the car, which is documented in the BaT listing.
I remember this car when it was in Monterey with the prior owner. The current owner sure has spent a fair amount of coin fixing many issues, hope it finds a god home with someone here. Good luck with the auction Justin.
This is another one of the cars that I have worked on extensively . I am RS restoration, Rick Stephenson. This is a really decent car, body is very good save that one small blister on the back. I did the engine and a lot of other stuff on the car. Did a valve adjustment last summer after 4 years of doing the engine and inside , you could eat off of it ( a little oily ) The twin Webers give the car very nice power and smooth. The only thing that this car really needs is the woodwork redone and it should have a 5 speed upgrade. A very, very good car for someone. If anyone has any questions feel free to PM me Disappointing to see it go ( will probably end up back in the US )
This car looks so much like my 1970 2800 CS that it's scary: same Nardi wheel, "CS Registry" badge on the same spot on the grille, center speaker delete on dash wood, stock wheels & caps, Polaris exterior/blue interior color scheme.... I could go on. It's previous owners obviously had excellent taste!
