    When was the car wrecked?

    It looks like it wears its '50s laquer paint. Maybe those damn hot rodders were racing down the back roads and flipped.


    Looks great and I wish my metal guy was that cheap!!!

    In removing paint we found traces of blue. The car was wrecked in about 85 or 86. I was told the owner was on way home from a show....JOHN

    Stunning work. I'm really glad to see that you chose to save it instead of scrapping it out as a lost cause. Can't wait to see more!

    Hey, great to see the build on the coupe.
    Just a quick intro, I too do the same thing and go to the clients place to work on his car, no hassles no complaints.
    Its great working this way.
    Just recently did few caddilacs in Europe , and now in Mexico doing a custom merc for a guy.
    You can check it out here on the HAMB,... Mexican Merc 50

    Good luck on the project.
