Red HT Rose ID

This rose was grown by my grandfather between 1965 and 1970 in Necochea (Buenos Aires, Argentina). After this period, he kept just a small plant grown from its own roots which still flowers every year. A friend of him, owner of a very well known nursery, wanted to buy my grandfathers rose as he said it was one of his favourite and a very difficult rose to get. I know that it could be a really difficult task at all, taking into account that there are so many red roses, but I have had great results posting my unknown roses here. I wish I could have the same luck in this occasion!
