Complete frame-off restoration

 

* The engine was rebuilt by a professional engine rebuild company in Alabama (Huntsville Engine Performance Center) including new pistons. valves and lots of other new items. a new cam shaft had to be special made. The car really runs great and on regular gas (no lead additive).

 

* The wheels were done by Dayton Wheels.

 

* All plating chrome and gold was done by Advanced Plating in Nashville. TN.

 

* New rear axles were made since the original ones had cracks.

 

* the body paint is from the original paint colors. but modern base-coat. clear-coat was used.

 

* The upholstery was copied from the original. so that all pleats and buttons are the same.

 

* Four extra wheels are also included that had been modified by having plates welded over the front of the spokes - this was done to keep mud out of the spokes on the old-time roads.

* I have only made one modification from the original. and that was to add a 6-volt electric fuel pump. hidden in the frame. It makes for an easy start and a great running car. The original vacuum system is still in place and could be restored easily.

 

The car is an eye-catcher and has consistently won first place in every car show I have taken it to. It is a great driver too!
