This was a fairly complete car pulled out of Quonset. After thoroughly checking it out for the customer, we found the complete drive train to be original number’s matching and the body to have only suffered a light front end hit at some point. The owner wanted a complete restoration back to original, he loved the color.
So we completely stripped the car, made the necessary rust repairs, trunk floor and both quarters behind rear wheels. We completely rebuilt the drive train back to 100% stock down to the trans, engine, exhaust, rear differential. We were able to save, clean and detail about 90% of the original parts. When completed the car was sold at Mecum Auction and is now with a collector in Texas.
