11 - "a thorough re-commissioning of the still very original and low mileage Ferrari was begun. Bradford, Massachusetts based C.B. Restorations was chosen for the paint and bodywork. Very little of the latter was required before 08327 received a new coat in the original Celeste Blue metallic color it wore from new. An award winning restoration shop, C.B. did a superb job throughout, clearly evident upon close inspection today. At the same time, the car's chrome and bright work was carefully re-plated to look its best. The Borrani wire wheels were restored and a fresh set of Michelin XWX tires mounted.

Mechanically the car was gone though from stem to stern, with a full restoration and renewal of the braking system, fuel system, and refurbishing of the suspension including replacement of suspension joints and bushings. A four-wheel alignment was performed following suspension work to ensure proper road manners. The transaxle transmission was disassembled and restored with new synchromesh rings installed and all new gaskets and seals. Finally, the interior was fully re-trimmed in the original color of black, and new carpets carefully fitted. All interior chrome brackets and snippets were re-plated where needed. The gauges were sent to professionals to be restored at the same time.

Finally, nearly $25,000 was spent with Mark Allin's renowned restoration shop, Rare Drive, in East Kingston, New Hampshire, giving 08327 a thorough mechanical and cosmetic sorting. A binder with compression test results, receipts and photos from the work performed at both C.B. Restorations and Rare Drive accompany the sale of this car, thoroughly documenting the process."
