This was interesting car (as indeed most of them were) as I understand it was owned by Jumbo Goddard who had Arthur Rizzo in Sydney Convert it to RHD .It was Black originally. it was then sold to various owners until it was restored in Vic. Race driver Vern Shuppan bought it and had Wolf Grodd Restore it .It is now creamy color with burgundy seats plus it was returned to left hand drive.
Wolf also converted a gullwing to RHD years ago for a customer in Hong Kong.
