Legal delivery to Hoffman Motors Corp on September 26, 1967

This is a remarkable example in that a great deal of the factory original parts and finishes have survived, augmented by the car’s original window sticker.
The ten photos below (including the all-important window sticker) are from the Bring a Trailer website. Other than the optional steel sliding roof — rare on early 1600-2 sub-models — the options listed are typical of Hoffman Motors-imported cars. As shown in the photos, the car was equipped at some point with a rare Mark IV Custom air conditioning unit. Blaupunkt (Hamburg?) AM radio remains in place.
