That green notchback was truly a beautiful thing to behold when I first clapped eyes on it at Tatton where that photograph was taken.
The engine bay was similarly as pretty as the top

No dig intended what would you be willing to pay and then probably double that again its so hard to say as one has not come on the open market for a while but such a unique piece of motoring history i guess that the only way to sell properly is to market it for at least 3 months worldwide and sell at an international auction without reserve if the seller has the nerve.
That way you have exactly what its worth
