This is a really super piece of US kitsch, it looks even better as a convertible. The early releases had no suspension that came later on the 'S' models. This first release was available in white with blue seats or blue with silver seats. One of my sources has it in red too, but I think they have confused it with the later 215s, which is red. It is of course possible that some new red bodies went on to the old non-suspension bases during the switch over to the S model. You will also see some of them with 1959 cast into the rear numberplate - some later releases have this removed. All versions are of similar (highish) value.

This is a nice example with its screen intact.
