In the fall of 2015, a complete restoration began on this custom Fastback. Recently completed in spring of 2017, the car was completely disassembled and a number of brand-new parts were installed, including a 351/450hp Cleveland engine with new drivetrain, automatic transmission and OMG shifter, custom headers, computerized MSG fuel-injection system, stainless gas tank, windshield, custom exhaust, custom radiator and fans, serpentine belt system, wiring harness, custom interior, modern Bluetooth stereo with amp, speakers and subwoofer, electric windows, power locks, center console with cup holders, steering wheel, complete brake job, engine compartment valves and hoses, Vintage Air, rear wing, dash and gauges, and newly upholstered bucket seats and carpet. Prior to this recent restoration, the car went through a full-body restoration that was completed in April 1987, consisting of front suspension with KONI shocks, rear suspension with master traction bars, custom paint and graphics, and one-piece front valance and chin spoiler. The car has been lowered 1 inch. All of the factory seams were removed and the car spent nine months in the paint shop, where every one of the 24 coats of primer, base coat, colors and clear coats were block-sanded. The custom paint blend consists of Ditzler Calypso Coral as the base, with Star Pearl Candies of Heather, Wild Rose and Silver Metallic over a white base. The engine compartment is finished in Centari Black enamel. With chrome detail throughout, the entire undercarriage was stripped and repainted. The rear end and springs have been powder-coated with pinstripes. After the completion of the 1987 restoration, the car went on to win a number of awards (awards do not go with the car).
