Description

Lot #1056 - Amazing one-off special 4-door dual cockpit roadster was made in the 1970s by Derry Mallalieu Engineering of Aylesbury, England with an alloy body by Wilkinson of Derby, England. The original owner shipped it to Los Angeles where they made the rounds of the Hollywood crowd. The car is right-hand drive and went through a complete body-off restoration and was taken apart with sympathetic attention given to the entire car, nothing was left untouched. It has less than 17,000 miles since completed and runs as you would expect. The car was the major poster car for the movie "Big Bad Mama," starring Angie Dickenson, William Shatner and Tom Skerritt.
