Description
This convertible has just completed a full frame-off restoration. The goal was to return the car to original condition. NewBorne Classics carefully dissected the car, removing all the interior components, instrumentation, wiring, panels and convertible top to replace or recondition. The exterior was treated much the same way, all chrome, hood, trunk lid removed to strip and prep for new paint along with the remaining body panels. All work was performed to meet original specifications. The engine compartment was addressed in similar fashion, engine, transmission removed, all electrical components, heater box, wiring, brake and fuel lines and master braking/ clutch pieces removed. The engine compartment was also striped and prepped for paint. The underside of the vehicle had all suspension pieces removed, reconditioned and painted to original condition. A new wiring harness was installed and the instrumentation was tested. The vehicle was primed and painted in Old English Ivory. All new chrome was installed along with new interior components and convertible top. Detailed engine compartment and underneath the dash.
