Restoring '64 230SL

My dad and I purchased a Red 1964 Mercedes-Benz 230SL from my grandfather 2 years ago. It's a grey market car and it's in awesome shape. My and I and wanted to do a full resto on the car and I wanted to ask you guys if you know anyone that specializes in old Mercedes-Benz cars.

The hard top is in incredible condition on the inside, but there is a lot of rust pitting on the outside. The car has its quirks...faded wood, rusty chrome, and it needs some suspension work. Any help you guys have at all would be incredible. We're getting it out of winter storage soon so I will post some pictures when I get the chance.
