This vehicle is being meticulously restored with every effort being made for a historically correct restoration.
This is a challenging project as the car has low miles and was only titled once. For this reason more effort is required to save and work around the parts of the vehicle that have been preserved. This includes many parts, inspection marks and tags from the assembly line.
After being driven for only 18,938 miles the car was parked and was discovered in a field in February on 2017. Our research continues on this find and information will be updated, as it becomes available.

All parts were body worked as needed and the entire car was skim coated. Primed and blocked sanded and primed again before final block sanding. Hundreds of hours went into the bodywork alone for a beautiful paintjob.
