I believe this was the last complete car built by Contemporary (Burtis Motorworks LTD)in NY. It was built specifically to run Watkins glen. All Jag suspension. I'm the third owner.

It will need tires at some point, that's it. I spent $2500 not long ago getting the carbs rebuilt, fuel filters added, fuel gauge to work and few other things fixed where needed. It does have a couple scratches here and there for my kids when they were little. I also pumped a pole in my garage that protects my water heater and there is a hairline crack in the paint across the nose but it is very hard to notice. All scratches can easily be repaired. It's a head turner and a screamer!

Here is a youtube video of it running https://youtu.be/y57mQtNb4NE
