This restoration has been a trial of Strength and at times I did not think
the old girl wanted to be back on the road, being laid up since 1959.
The car is as near to its original as I could make it. and has had everything
replaced /rebuilt/restored etc. including 90% of the wood frame all rebuilt
by me by hand in its original American timber, the engine has been completely
rebuilt using new pistons etc etc. balanced and converted to Lead free petrol.
every bearing on any part of the car has been replaced, but I have installed
grease nipples as well as the connections for the bijou lubrication system.
Things like steering,brakes, cables wiring have all been replaced as original
all the dials have been replaced or restored, and I have made the trunk.
all chroming carried out to concours standard and the interior is all renewed
but to original specification or at least as it was in both material and pattern
when I purchased it as a wreck, and she now drives very well.
Having spent on average 2 hours a day for 21 years, its finished.
