Some of the features of this model are covered headlights, toggle switches, full instrumentation with styling and a design that was way ahead of its time with center console, and arm rests.

Levels of restoration offered by Classic Showcase

Driver Level Restoration:
A driver level car is generally a strong #2 car that can be driven on a regular basis. This is the most affordable of our three levels of restoration and is usually for the person who wants a reliable, beautiful classic car to drive. This car can be shown in driver level competitions.

Show-Driver Level Restoration:
A show-driver level car is a 96+ point or a high level #2 car. These cars are generally found in a climate controlled facility and driven to Concours judging and car shows. Components are original or a proper replacement.

Concours Level Restoration:

A show level car is a 99+ point or #1 car. These cars are generally not driven more than a few miles a year and found in a museum or collection. They may also be found in a climate controlled facility and transported in an enclosed trailer to Concours judging and car shows. All components are original or an exact replacement with attention to specific detail.

Preservation Level Restoration:
Classic Showcase is now offering a Preservation level of restoration for those that do not want to disturb the originality of their vehicle. This is a minimal restoration level that focuses more on cleaning the vehicle and safety requirements and usually will not receive very many replacement parts. This vehicle can be shown in Preservation level competitions but is not a guaranteed winner. Our goal is to preserve the original patina of the vehicle.
