$175000 In restoration Receipts First Place Winner Starfest Arizona 1971 4 spd

This absolutely stunning 280 SL was a restoration project of one of the most respected men in the classic auto industry.The car had a complete and thorough restoration done on a rust free California car by Bruce Canepa.The restoration receipts exceeds $175000.Mr. Canepa's restoration have adjectives attached to them such as "thorough",'meticulous',and "retentive".This vehicle is a result of those thorough and retentive restorations.The attention to detail garnered this car a First Place finish of the pretigious Starfest event held at the Arizona Biltmore as well as a Best of Show finish at the MBCA Mile High Charity Car Show in Colorado.
The car was restored in 1990-1991 so the $175000 in receipts is in 1990s dollars and hourly rates.The car went to a car collector and stayed in his stable until his recent passing.The receipts for maintenance and upkeep of the car since the extensive restoration alone would make a car collector proud.In addition to receipts since restoration the car comes with the restoration receipts,the awards and a Mercedes- Benz Classic Zertifikat.
