A very rare and desirable car, being one of a small number of Brewster 'Playboys’ built and bodied in the USA. In excellent sturdy and smart condition, and has recently benefitted from major attention to the engine, steering, suspension, brakes, etc, all fully documented, resulting in a very useable car. Very striking in appearance in bold yellow with good beige leather interior and matching hood, excellent plating, including to the drum headlights, pillar lights and tail lights, substantial tubular bumpers, running board edgings, etc. Very nicely finished inside and out, with some appealing details including a lovely set of correct instruments, twin side-mounted spares and a practical trunk with excellent fitted suitcases, and of course a dickey or 'rumble' seat at the rear. Prepared, serviced, running nicely and to be offered UK registered and MoT tested.
