Earlier in the year we were commissioned to refresh 4960 after a very American restoration. The car had been in America since De Dobbeleer sold it to Gene Cesari in 1960 and was bought by a collector who had it fully restored. In 2008 it was presented to the judges at Pebble Beach concourse. Thankfully, all the original components the Americans considered too scruffy to present, were kept safely and Tula was able to restore and re-fit them with minor tweaks here and there. The car is now presented in a soft blue with its race numbers as it is believed the car ran in the 1930 Targa Florio. Recently purchased, the new owner plans to race the car in Europe.
