This car is owned by Andreas Nagel.

"I own a blue label 3-litre tourer with original body by Gurney Nutting. We live in Aberdeen in Scotland although I originally come from Munich.

The car was bought by my father in 1965 at Sotheby's and I became the proud owner in 1984 after he had passed. I lived in England at the time and brought the old girl back to Britain.

I continued my father's membership of the BDC to this day.

In 1977 father came second in the Mille Miglia re-run and was awarded the Messervy trophy."
