I had been on the point of completing the purchase of a superb 1963 Peugeot 404 Pininfarina Cabriolet in excellent condition, from a reputable dealer in Holland, when I came across the website of Absolute Classic Cars in Lincoln and was immediately impressed with the very high quality of stock on offer.
In view of my imminent purchase of the Peugeot Cabrio, one car on their website particularly caught my attention - a beautifully restored 1961 Fiat-OSCA 1500S Pininfarina Cabriolet. It was even prettier than the Peugeot, and in even better condition having been the subject of a painstaking ground-up ‘nut & bolt’ restoration. And this was a model that had been built by Pininfarina and had a Maserati-designed engine!
This little Italian gem seemed a more seductive proposition in so many ways. However, I now had to make a very quick decision as the dealer in Holland had already arranged transport to the UK and was awaiting funds! If I was going to pull out and buy a different car then I had to know, very quickly, if the Fiat-OSCA was as good a car as it was claimed to be, and that there would be no complications in doing business with another dealer who I had not had any contact with before.
Well I need not have worried! From the moment I made email contact about the Fiat-OSCA it was very clear to me that I would be in excellent hands and need have no doubt about the quality of the car, the accuracy of their description of it, or the level to which it would be prepared for handover. A deal was struck and I was very impressed by Mark & Carls attention to detail - I think it’s fair to say that they went the extra mile in every possible way to make sure the car would meet my expectations and my needs. I only ever had the feeling that I was dealing with people who were at least as enthusiastic about this very rare car, and indeed about classic cars in general, as I am, and I found their approach to selling classics to be refreshing, open, honest and highly professional. Mark even personally delivered the car to me all the way down from Lincoln to Devon and made sure that I was happy with all aspects of both the car and the buying experience. Needless to say, I now recommend Absolute Classic Cars to others at every opportunity!"
