This car is the product of a year long restoration conducted by Special Edition, Inc. in Bremen, Indiana. This car was found in Texas where it was well known to a Porsche service garage in Houston. The car was originally delivered in Texas and remained there throughout; all four owners are known with full documentation and service history.The goal of this restoration was not to replace the car with a multitude of reproduction parts, but to restore and rejunvenate the car in order to retain it's originality.

It underwent a bare metal respray in Glasurit single stage paint in its original color (Polo red), and was wet sanded with the 3M Trizact system. All of the chrome and trim have been redone, and it remains faithful to its original condition with the exception of european lights and pepita seats. All of the hardware was appropriately replated and installed; all seals and decos were replaced.
