1979 CLENET SERIES I 2-DOOR ROADSTER
Daniel Schmitt & Co. is extremely proud to present one of the most incredibly preserved examples of an exceedingly rare, factory coach-built neo-classic; #187 of only 248 Series I Clenets ever produced. The Clenet began with a young French designer named Alain Clenet who had tired of corporate auto industry politics, and decided to leave his career as an industry consultant and build his dream car. At the age of just 33, he assembled a team a craftsmen and brokered a deal with Ford Motor Company to supply Lincoln Continental frames, engines, and components. From their 40,000 square-foot factory in Santa Barbara, California, each car was painstakingly crafted with the only goal being to make the finest car in the world. At the time of production, Clenets were often compared to Rolls-Royces, as they were appointed using the same English Connolly leather, Walnut from the same forest, and same wool carpet as the famed luxury marque with build quality to match. However, it could be argued that compared to a Clenet, a Rolls-Royce is positively mass produced. So few Clenets were constructed, that seeing one today is the rarest of automotive sightings. This particular example wears positively gorgeous black paint over copper Connolly hides, and has traveled just 11,847 miles since new. There is no more coveted, more luxurious, better built neo-classic in existence and this is likely the finest example of the marque on earth. Do not miss this opportunity to acquire one the finest, most desirable custom coach built automobiles ever created. Classic cars have proven to be among the most resilient and rewarding investments in recent years with the Historic Automobile Group Index (HAGI) jumping 39% in 2013 and posting gains of 395-percent over the last 10-years.

Financing

Finance rates as low as 5.9%.


We know that classic car financing can pose a unique challenge. Although a vintage or exotic car can be an excellent investment, some financial institutions attempt to apply standard “used car” rules for financing a classic car, which in many cases can make loan approval difficult.


We work closely with many banking institutions that understand and recognize the collector value of classic cars and view them as an investment, which allows us to help you get the financing you need so that you can have the car you have dreamed of.


Terms available up to 144 Months
