Finished in Sunset Pearl and Root Beer Brown and complemented by a saddle interior featuring leather seats with synthetic suede inserts, this 210 comes with restoration receipts, parts manuals, color-matched diecast replica and a clear title.

During the restoration, which was completed in January 2017, the exterior was finished in Sunset Pearl and Root Beer Brown.

Though his first love is Citroen, he fell for muscle cars after being seduced by 1950s finned flyers—in fact, he’s written two books on American muscle. But please don’t think there is a strong American bias because foreign weirdness is never far from his heart. With a penchant for underground music from the 1960-70s, Diego and his family reside in metropolitan Phoenix.
