"1989 CLENET COACHWORKS CABRIOLET*."
Harkening to the design aesthetics and curvilinear forms of the 1930s while utilizing modern technology, the Clenet name became the epitome of luxury and style throughout the late 20th century. By all accounts, this magnificent car was hand-assembled for a group of investors (who were interested in reforming Clenet Coachworks) with oversight by the renowned Leonard Rivero, founder of Dragon Coachworks. Winning over 300 awards and over 100 best in shows in car expositions throughout North America, this example comes replete with trophies should the buyer desire, and was one of the only 1989 Cabriolets built. It is a significant piece of Clenet Coachworks history.
Including, a 302 fuel injected Ford V8 engine, automatic transmission, power steering, power windows, air conditioning, black diamond mirror finish, cut glass side windows, crystal hood ornament, mahogany running boards, chrome side pipes, leather seats, hand loomed wool carpet, wool upholstered head liner, burl wood high gloss dash, walnut gear shift knob, cut crystal backlit front and rear ash receivers, 24k. Gold plated steering wheel signed Enzo Nardi, 16046 original miles.
*As titled by the State of Ohio Department of Motor Vehicles.
