In the next step, we have taken the frame and engine outside to fit the body to the frame. This is a very important step to make sure everything lines up correctly, before the body is placed permanently.


Power steering, power brakes, power windows, power seats, fender skirts, wide white-wall tires, full hub caps, heat/defrost, and a Town and Country radio are some of the features on this multi-award winning “E” Bird.
