When the customer brought this car to us for restoration, we were planning on a body-off restoration that would follow CTCI standards for a top show car and Excellence in Authenticity Award requirements. This car will be completely restored with these standards in mind. When completed, it will have a white exterior, black and white interior, restored hard top and soft top.
The first step on this car was to strip off all the old paint. This makes it easier to repair any metal imperfections.
