1968 Mustang Fastback Resto Mod
Our customer has been talking to us for some time about building a special 1968 Mustang. He had one many years ago, but he wants this one to be a unique build to him. As a long time Jaguar owner, including both an E and F Type, he knows about classic styling and modern performance. This car was purchased as a stalled restoration and had many pieces already purchased. We will be using some Shelby based styling pieces, but generally keeping the traditional good looks and styling of the original car. Follow the build here and on Facebook!
1965 Series 1 E-Type
New to the shop is solid Series 1 4.2-litre car that had been sitting for a while and needed to be re-commissioned. We’re starting with a new fuel tank and carb rebuild, rebuilding the diff and we’ll freshen up all the components. We got the car running only to find the clutch disc had rusted to the flywheel. We pulled the engine and trans and have the new assembly being installed now. The intention is to get the car running and driving well and refresh this older restoration so the owner can use this beauty in the summer!
1965 Alfa Romeo Giulia Sprint
This car had been sitting for a quite a few years and been started but not used on the road for a while. It’s a really nice and well-loved car that had an older restoration but needed some service and refreshing. After a full maintenance checkup, we fixed a head gasket leak, replaced all of the cooling hoses, rebuilt the Weber carbs, installed an electronic ignition, and spruced up some of the paint. At the owner’s request we installed a modern retro radio and made sure the car was road worthy at a moments notice. She’s a real beauty!
1967 Austin Healey 3000 BJ8
This Healey came from Kansas City and is being treated to a full restoration. The engine has been rebuilt but the body sat for quite some time and needs a fair amount of love. Surprisingly, the car must have been rust-proofed as there are plugs in the chassis and the frame is in very good shape. The intent is to keep it BRG. Follow along as we go!
1965 Alfa Romeo Duetto Spider
This car belonged to our friend and Ferrari aficionado Tom Caulfield. We have been servicing the car for years, including an engine overhaul. The current owner, and another regular customer, recently brought it in for a few minor issues and a new exhaust. We’re also doing a service check on this very original and really nice Duetto.
1955 Austin Healey 100-4 – This car had its restoration started at a body shop that was to work on it when they had free time. After many years, nothing much was complete, and the work quality was sub-par for such a nice car. Our goal is to restore it back to its once original quality. Right hand drive car will really be nice when complete!
1965 Series 1 Jaguar E-Type
This car languished in a body shop for over eight years. The body was rust free, but had been severely abused by attempts to remove the paint. An attempted V8 transplant ruined the bird cage, and necessitated replacement. The car is finished in an original dark blue and will sport a British tan interior. An engine rebuild is in process.
