Regarding This Vehicle

1980 Clenet Series II Cabriolet

Only one original owner from new and just 25,489 actual miles!  Fully loaded with all options and in excellent condition being all original!  A remarkable car, with extreme rarity in the neoclassic market!  This represents #66 of only 187 Cabriolets produced in Series II excellence!  What an opportunity! 

Alain Clenet brought his dreams of building top end, limited production neo-classic automobiles to reality in 1975 with the help of many fellow automobile enthusiast investors. Established in Santa Barbara, California using only the best craftsmen available, and high build standards, Clenet Coachworks Inc. was born! With a 1930’s design inspiration, both all modern drive trains and suspension systems, these splendid cars were largely sold to only the wealthy and elite. At a cost of over $100,000 in the late 1970’s, they typically found homes with Hollywood fame that included Aaron Spelling, Sylvester Stallone, Wayne Newton, and Farrah Fawcett! They were even features among the wealthiest on episode of Dallas and soap opera Dynasty! The luxurious Series II was introduced in 1979 with placards created for the cars prepared and numbered through 250 units slated for production. Although, true production ended at 187 vehicles produced through 1980 making them extremely rare to find today!

Offered here is 1980 Clenet Series II Cabriolet #66, having only one registered owner from new, and showing just 25,489 actual miles! Built atop a 1979 Ford platform using a 351ci-2bbl V8 power plant and AOD overdrive transmission, it offers plenty of power to motivate this full-fendered beauty down the highway with ease! Features and options include air conditioning, power front disc brakes, power steering, chrome wire wheels wrapped in brand new American Classic 235/75R15 wide whitewall tires, rear-mounted continental accessory spare, power windows, 6-way power seats, full interior courtesy lights, air horns, flip top fuel cap, added electronic musical melody horn system, cruise control, Dietz fog lamps, front/rear seatbelts, heat/defrost, glass hood ornament, etched glass vent windows, Pioneer sound system, faux side exit exhaust with chrome tips, and more!

The interior is draped in luxury with broad burled walnut dash board, complete instrumentation with quartz clock, leather wrapped steering wheel, Recaro sport seats, all leather surfaces, and room for four adults! Outside, a stunning two-tone paint finish remains in very good condition showing only minimal signs of normal use, along with teakwood trimmed hood, running boards, deck lid, and continental trim. This example sold new to Charles Abrams in Greentown, PA new, but spent the better part of its life parked in their West Palm Beach, Florida summer home. After Mr. Abrams passing in 2012, this example remains parked indoors for several years. The St. Louis Car Museum was lucky to have the opportunity to bring this exciting Cabriolet to our facility for a full renovation. This largely included full fluid and filter changes, all new ignition system, fresh battery & tires, new driver side power window motor & regulator, drained fuel system, rebuilt carburetor, fresh rear brake wheel cylinders, front brake hoses, new idler arm, and all new interior carpet/bindings in our upholstery shop! We have taken the liberty of adding nearly 40 miles to the odometer to ensure it is in road ready condition! Please feel welcome to call with questions or schedule a chance to review in person. What a terrific opportunity to own a super rare Neo-Classic Clenet Series II!
