08 - "In 2008 a complete restoration was begun, and the Export was fastidiously disassembled and prepared. 0088 E was complete and intact after its many years in Southern California, and was an ideal base for a restoration. Steve Beckman's Metalworks in Costa Mesa was retained to prepare the body and finish it in the vintage color of Amaranto, a shade in which the car was repainted when it was roughly one year old. The late Bob Wallace performed all of the machine work, balancing and blueprinting the original matching-numbers Colombo V-12, and similarly rebuilding the gearbox and differential. The opportunity was taken to install a limited-slip differential that now provides for a negligible loss of torque during hard cornering, allowing the car to perform with improved modernity and safety during touring and racing applications.

Multiple components were sent to specialists for refurbishment, with the original wheels going to Cork Adams, the brightwork to South Bay Chrome, and the original instruments to MoMa. When all the individual components had been re-conditioned and returned, Pete Engel installed a correct new interior with naturale lastico upholstery and Mr. Betz oversaw the car's reassembly, as well as final detailing of the chrome and paint. All components were refinished to the original type of plating and finish. The colors of paint used were also consistent with the original, including the silver grey on the engine, gearbox and differential. The fastidious restoration cost approximately $600,000 as reflected by an extensive file of invoices."
