Who doesnt love a Gullwing? Its such a beautiful iconic car. This one for sale by Gullwingmotorcars was originally light metallic blue with red leather interior. Records show the car has had 3 owners since new. The original matching numbers engine was just rebuilt by Sigfred Linke. It includes matching red luggage, but seller admits it maybe not be factory pieces. The manuals and tool kit are included as well. The price seems high considering other gullwings that have sold. This is not an aluminum bodied gullwing. Any thoughts?
