The front end was completely rebuilt. The restoration included the use of many NOS components. The body was rust free and still retained the original paint prior to the restoration. The car had zero rust repair and was the most solid and original example to be found. The body with striped to bare metal. The body panels were long boarded with hours of prep work. The paint was professionally applied and polished to show car luster. All of chrome was triple chrome plated included vent windows, all side window frames, bumpers, emblems, rockets, etc. The world globes on trunk and hood with 14k gold plated. The restoration was well executed. The restoration cost today to build a car of this caliber would be in excess of $100k.
