We have restored all the sheet metal, painted the car black and then accented the rich black color with crimson red seat piping and anthracite wheels and powder coated windshield and cockpit trim to match. While black was never offered by the factory, we feel this is a stunning color combination with tasteful accents.
We always work hard to retain the original heritage and components, so you’ll notice all the correct switches and dials as well as a dashboard that’s restored to look just like the original. Same with doors and door pockets.
We upgraded the power plant to 1275 and the front brakes to disk, while retaining the original lever shocks and 165 tires for performance and ride quality (we hate tube shocks on these cars). Also fit is an improved exhaust for performance while retaining sufficient ground clearance. Going too big on tires and exhaust has significant consequences!
This car should be done in a few weeks and here’s a preview in the video below!
