This chassis was originally fitted with Mulliner coachwork. The present body is constructed of Peruvian Walnut and composite materials over the traditional white ash frame. Over 20 years ago, Don Loweree built the bulk of this body. It has been assembled, finished, hinged and mounted on the chassis by John Todd, working over the last three years. Mr Todd also did the mechanical restoration and necessary pattern making and construction of the two instrument boards. He was assisted by associates Manson Chisholm and Steve Hoppins. The finish consisted of approximately 12 coats of Marine varnish and two applications of automotive Clear Cote.

The upholstery is blue faux alligator and smooth leather by master craftsman Bruce Wilson. Floor carpeting is gray lambskin. Two hinged compartments in the rear contain a detailed picnic basket, champagne glasses, original tools and the spare tire.
