The 1960 Corvette Barn Car is getting closer and closer to going home! Check out the video below to watch the very first start up in 40 years!
The engine sounds great and we can not wait for the owner to come by and hear it as well! Josh has been busy buttoning up all of the last little details on this restoration. The wheels have been blasted, primed, and repainted along with new white wall tires installed. Currently, he is getting the convertible top frame prepared for the new top material. The entire convertible frame was cleaned, lubricated, and repainted. If you live in the area, keep your eyes out for this one this summer!
The other 1960 Corvette is getting it’s first coat of primer block sanded by Corey, Tyler and Al. They are also working on the doors, hood, decklid, and trunk lid. The black that you see on the body is a guide coat, which the guy use to insure that they have sanded over the entire vehicle.
The 1965 Corvette is standing tall, fresh out of the booth. Last week, the guys wet sanded the new finish and buffed it out to a mirror shine. It is hard not to stop and stare at this beautiful car.
The 1978 Corvette Pace Car is standing tall as well. Al has painted the red stripe on the wheels, and Ed mounted and balanced the new Goodyear GT Radial reproduction tires. Ed has also charged the A/C along with getting the seats and rest of the interior installed. Once everything is buttoned up and ready to go, Al and Ed will both install the new Pace Car decals and then it will be ready for a complete detail!
LAST BUT NOT LEAST…..The 1965 Corvette from last year is getting picked up soon by the owner. Ed has installed the seats, oil pressure line, new clock, and fuel door. Going over the last few things before the customer takes delivery.
