Hey that is a great looking color. Also I couldn't tell,  is this a X33, or X77 car?

Forgive me for being naive but, why would a car with only 26k original miles need to be high end restored? (what does that entail?)

thanks

Hi BULLITT65

It is an X77 car - the X33 trim was added.

It is my understanding that the restoration process was minor & was mainly re-furbishing components...it has been re-painted using laquer.

Does it have an electric antenna or is it just hard to see in the pic? Besides the X33 trim was anything else added?  Also when was it produced (according to the firewall tag)?

thanks

Thank you for the nice comments.

BULLITT65 - it has an AM radio with telescopic antenna & the trim tag is a 04C. The ZL2 hood was also added.

Nice. Is the interior blue or black?
(I look forward to seeing more pics when you have them.) ;)

interesting I would have thought your steering wheel would have had the wood grain, I thought the lower dash and steering wheel was part of the Z/23 package? But maybe not, because I do not see a grab handle either.

So was the lower dash wood a separate option then? Or was it included with the wood grain console? (since I have never seen a console without the wood grain)

D55 got you the driver's side dash woodgrain trim, as well as Z23. Z87 included the Z23 items and also added the woodgrain on the passenger's side (ashtray and glovebox areas).

Does this mean that this car should have wood grain on the steering wheel, dash molding, bright metal pedal trim & a grab bar? (These are all part of the z23)

JM's report did not mention this as a component issue?
