The vendor is including The Beauford Belle Company Limited (currently dormant) with the sale of the vehicle so that the new custodian, if they wish, can continue to use it for business use. It even has a poem written about it!

 

"There is a car that casts a spell,

She goes by the name of The Beauford Belle,

She leads parades both near and far,

With her classic lines she is a star.

She's very sexy and sublime,

In red and black she is divine.

She loves publicity, photos too,

She's more than happy to pose for you.

So when you see her, wave and smile

At her stunning looks and unique style!"
