Roadster
This car was manufactured on August 25, 1955, and shipped to New York on September 6, 1955. The first owner sold it in 1961 with 39,600 miles on it, and the second owner kept the car 42 more years, during which time it had only traveled another two miles!

A full, body-off restoration was undertaken in 2004. The car is correct in every detail, from the very rare sand-cast carburetors to every number matching the original build sheet. The car is painted the correct color of Graphitgrau (DB190 Graphite Grey) with Leder Rot (DB 1079) red leather interior and with a Hellgrau (DB708 Light Grey) soft top.

Factory options include high-gloss paint, special interior with Becker Mexico radio and automatic antenna, sealed beam headlights, English ***** instruments and bumper overriders. Dealer-installed options include wheel trim rings, chrome stone guards, chrome rocker strip, jack-hole covers and eyebrow chrome on fenders.
