Good question It's Alan from LAX former car, #15. The service records and repaint discussion is very interesting. Don't really understand the engine rebuild, didn't need it. Money would have been better spent for OEM PPG paint for the repaint, original color was gorgeous. But for a mechanically sound SV, even if its not quite original due to the lackluster repaint, could be a good buy. At the right price, sending it to Driven Exotics for a proper paint job could make sense.

Roy Cats at Cat's Exotics has a good condition one at $305,000, so I would say definitely no more than that.

Gold on the outer little bolts are OEM but center lug bolts and cap were silver and black, looked like mismatched jewelry. When I refurbed SV ME #2 in 2013 I had Driven Exotics make it all match, cost me a grand a -1 point at Concorso, and 2nd place

Also the discussion on the "SV graphics" cracks me up A Monterey Ed SV, unless you own one, do not judge the SV "graphics"

Well then a strong value on BaT should help your car sell! Agree that your car looks 10X better without the big questions on "repaint/rebuild".

Roy, how or where can you get chrome wheels restored? My roadster needs that done. Thanks in advance.

Does anyone here have a picture of the car prior to the re-paint?

Thanks. I'm not familiar with "ocean blue" but it appears to have been repainted in the correct shade. I'm a fan of original paint when possible just as much as any other purist and collector, but what's the concern here? That the quality of the re-paint is sub-par?

The ocean around the Phi Phi islands of Thailand is green, so maybe the painter was from Thailand 😜
