New fuel injectors/hoses - New brake rotors/pads front and rear - New emergency brake shoes - New brake master cylinder.
Sport springs (lowering the car approx 1.5") - 5 new 255/70 R14 Vredestein tires and more...
Once finished the car weighed 3050 lb.

I just completed 835 trouble free miles during the return trip from the Canadian border to the SF Bay Area.

Serviced and inspected and ready for tour and event use.

With the sport springs and lowered ride height this unique SL is a joy to drive. It exhibits none of the ponderous handling of a standard V8 107 SL. Negligible body roll and quick and taught handling over twisty roads.

All restoration receipts are available.
