Spring is here and it seems MGB owners can’t wait to get their cars out on the road. Two showed up in one day to have a once-over after being in winter storage.
Thanks to the Pontiac Club of Iowa for making us the location of their April meeting. Check them out at http://www.pontiacclubia.com/.
The Bel Air is finished and ready to go home. The owner even already brought in new project for us to start on.
A big crate arrived at the shop today containing the 572ci V8 for 1970 Chevelle project.
After a little fiddling the 1949 MG TC springs to life after its extended slumber.
The Penton Jackpiner parts are painted, the aluminum tank is significantly lighter and ready for the Penton decals.
The 1974 MG MGB roadster has been painted and now on to assembling the engine. We have rebuilt the transmission as well as a new rear end that will be dropped in to convert this car over to wire wheels.
Finally we have all the parts together to complete the engine for the Austin Moke project.
Two 1950′s Grumman Olson parcel deliveries have arrived stay tuned to see what are plans are for them.
The 283ci V8 for the Bel Air looks great painted to match the car.
If it has wheels and an engine we will fix it for you.
Finishing up the body work on the Bel Air. The 1963 Chevrolet Impala parts car for this one came from the famous Lambrecht Chevrolet auction in Pierce, Nebraska.
After lifting off the body the 4.9L flat 12 has been liberated for service.
Have a mid-engined exotic that needs some TLC? We currently have several in for body work, engine service, and interior restoration.
The Trans Am saw daylight this week as it was moved around the building so that we can install the wiring and engine and finish it up.
Today we powdercoated some sets of shoes in yellow and orange, look for them at a tournament in the future.
An early pair of SU carbs rebuild in progress, this model didn’t even use springs, but weights to push the pistons down.
Looking like a couple of yawning hippos these Austin Healey Sprites always bring smiles. The earlier white car will soon get a drivetrain and be sent on it’s way to its eager owner who took his wife on their first date in it some 50 years ago.
After: 1963 Daimler 2.5 V8. This car was brought to us with no engine, no working steering, or brakes. Without a Daimler engine the decision was made to drop a Ford V8 in it and now completed this thing really moves. The steering, transmission linkage, and motor mounts were some of the things we needed to engineer for this build.
Bring your classic by the shop like Donna did with her 1957 Austin Healey 100-6 and we will prepare it for storage.
