Talking about a RARE custom car. I think it's really neat that it was restored to the way it was in '58. I'm not if it would have been impossible to bring it back to "stock", but I'm glad part of the car's history was saved. what a neat ride.

Hi sailingadventure, please feel free to add the url or web site to the pictures, I am sure many people including myself would love to see the restoration pictures and the finished car!

The car had been customized in 1958 by a previous owner after it had been wrecked. At that time, these cars weren`t worth much, so it was fortunate that it wasn`t scrapped. Pictures of the restoration are on our website, but I don`t want to compete with the great guys at this website so I won`t include it in this comment.
