Condition: Exceptional restoration. This car was restored to the highest standard for participation in concours judged events at the topmost level. Tremendous effort was expended to authentically replicate every finish and to restore the mechanical perfection to every moving part. The car was completely disassembled and each individual component was inspected , cleaned, restored or replaced, and then authentically refinished prior to final assembly. The bodywork and paint are without flaw. The restoration was completed over a two year period by W W Motorcars of Broadway, Virginia. The interior trim has been faithfully replicated by Master craftsman, Don Vincent of Lorain, Ohio in matched hides and the expertly fitted convertible top and boot are reproduced in leather trimmed tan canvas. Chrome plated trim on these cars is extensive and elaborate. Countless items, from obvious large exterior items like the grille louvers and the bumpers to tiny interior trim details have been meticulously metal finished prior to plate. The superb quality of these details speaks volumes about this car. The car is in excellent driving condition as well. The car has been carefully driven approximately 1,000 miles per year since restoration and has always had clean, dry storage and regular maintenance.
