Hal Lanham, the current owner is no less meticulous. His comment about the car is its beautiful, restored, and you can drive it anywhere!
The pictures do not do the car justice. It is raining and wanted to post the ad. I will add more pictures later. I also have a build sheet and receipts for all work done. The car was body off restored. Wet sanded super high gloss finish on the paint.
