This is an original 4 speed manual transmission survivor SL with only 76k miles. It still has all original panels, mostly original paint with no rust or accident damage in it’s history, and excellent interior and chrome. It was traded to us by the second collector owner in June of 1997 with 55k miles. One of our employees purchased it immediately and then had us do a complete mechanical upgrade to it. He only drove it six hundred miles until we sold it for him to the last owner in May of 1999, who put 20k miles of fair weather driving on it in the last 14 years. We are currently servicing and updating it to our high standards, which includes the removal of most chrome trim for a complete professional color sand, machine compound, buff and wax of all paint surfaces. Note original panel numbers on hood and soft top cover panel, wax marks in headlight buckets, and original notches on front fender!
This is a rare factory two tone DB117 Papyrus White car with a DB904 Midnight Blue hardtop and matching hubcaps. It also has the original Blaupunkt AM/FM/SW/ radio and Hirschman power antenna. It has upgraded factory retractable seat belts and the optional third seat.
