We first purchased this genuine original Southern California SL in July of 1996 with only 73k miles on it. We then did a show quality repaint in the original DB304 Horizon Blue paint, as well a a complete major mechanical service + upgrade. We replaced the original soft top with a correct German canvas top. It also has the original hard top with the optional chrome moldings. In addition it has the rare option of a correct Becker AM/FM stereo radio & a hirschmann power antenna. The interior was original and in excellent condition then as it still is today, including the original rubber drivers heel pad demonstrating its low mileage and care over the years. We then sold it to a local collector who subsequently retired to Arizona were it has been ever since. He only put 6k additional careful miles on it in all those years. The body and paint are still as nice as they were when he purchased it. No dings, dents or scratches. Of course it has the original front fender notches as well as all correct factor spot welds and all original body panels. We just completed a major mechanical service and engine bay show detail as well as a complete new factory exhaust system. The seat covers, door panels, dash cover, kick panels, rear panels, convertible top cover pad and complete carpet set are all original with no cuts or cracks or tears and are in exceptional original condition, again demonstrating the care this car has had from new. The seat pads have been replaced with new factory horsehair seat pads (not aftermarket). The glass and chrome are also original and excellent. It comes with all its original books and proper tool kit. Don't mistake this car for the typical used up SL's out there with a quickie rehash. This is a real original survivor car sympathetically brought up to our high standards.
