    Thanks for the info... I researched a little and found an old picture from a concourse event in which it showed the car as being blue at some point? Not 100% sure that the caption/description would have been accurate but I wonder if the car underwent another color change before returning to the original gold??

    Do you have the picture of the car painted blue and the caption or a link to where they can be seen?

    WOW!
    A real blast from the past... I remember in 1978/79(?) getting shopped this car(60)K USD?) along with a late, steel SWB, from AD.
    Both cars showed well- with fresh paint-remember, it WAS the late 70's, and AD was the original "founder," per se, of "300Sl Services(Marblehead or Topsfield????), or "Gullwing Services"???(god it was a long time ago, so exact naming is just old man memories here..), now Paul Russel's shop(???),

    The Cal Spy: it was killer paint job, for those cars, in that time snapshot.
    But, having been involved with 1699GT the previous year(shopped at 38K-ish, I told him I thought he was "a bit optimistic" for j"just a steel, LWB spyder"...
    Ugh, ....another one from: I can't believe I let that those two slip through my fingers....don't even start with 1699...
    THAT was a special car, but at that age, I didn't really think it was that special, after all, I'd stumbled onto 1641 at a buddies shop at the same time in '78!
    How rare could they be?
    I eventually pulled 1615 with a buddy out of Scandinavia 15+ years ago-they ARE special cars...real "Cheinetti boy racer" cars...
    Oh the memories....
