Information

The car's build record also carries the important notation "Internat. Automobil Salon New York Standwagen," indicating that this Roadster served as the official New York show car. As the 1957 show was held in December 1956, 7500038 was likely retained for promotional duties and displayed at the 1958 New York International Automobile Show, held April 5th-13th.
