Brakes, hoses and brake lines have all been replaced with quality product, German when possible, such as German master cylinder. Backing plates ect powder coated. All cables replaced, new shocks. Correct grooved door handles and window cranks, all rechromed. Appropriate large SEKURIT logo on windows. All new rubber, seals, felt channels, scrapers, ect. This car had a complete nut and bolt restoration, there is nothing that has not been detailed, painted, powder coated or attended to.
Correct original 55 fenders. Stainless Steel Harrington bumpers.
Not sure why I tried to go through all the new parts and everything that was done to this car because everything was done to it and I am sure I missed many of the details. Please just ask if you have questions. I have all my receipts, many photos of resto process, engine, tranny build, ect.
Title free and clear and in my name, in hand!!
Work on the car was completed in 2013 and has very few miles since then. I only drive it around the grass to keep things moving properly. Stored in climate controlled garage.
Will assist with finding a transporter for shipping car. Buyer pays shipping. Thanks
