The originally-Franz Kitzerau 1936-37 2-litre Alta sports - supposedly chassis serial '64S' - was sold by Bonhams in Paris last week for £306,000.  Goodness me.  Ex-John Ruston, I believe?

Originally Bob Wood who I believe sold to John Ruston for US$180,000.00 in 2001. Bob hoped to get at least US$85,000.00 when he advised me he was looking to sell in 1998.

An interesting article with some photos of KMP977 #70, which won the Rally.
