DESCRIPTION

The accident and rust repairs consisted of floor pans, cowl panel, sills and boot floor. While the body was on the rotisserie, the sub frame was sandblasted and painted and received a host new front-end suspension components.

The assembled sub-frame was installed so the car could be moved around. The next stage was then fitting, aligning and gaping all panels ready for the car to go back to the paint shop for body work. The diff, brakes, suspension and steering components had been rebuilt and installed.

The owner has asked us to build a 308ci V8 for the car. The roller will now be set aside while the engine is being built. Once complete, it will be installed so the remaining panels can be fitted.

The owner asked us to paint the car Lettuce Alone green, with SS stripes and blackouts. With the intention of being daily driven, it was decided to install billet bonnet hinges, an alarm system and sound-deadening. 

This restoration is currently in progress - stay tuned for updates.
