Firstly guys I cannot take the praise for what is happening to the car but I will try and keep up to date with a few pics and progress reports.
I want my car to look original but have a slight hot rod look to it.
This how Charlie looked when I bought him 5 years ago. Great looking car all original and had been restored in the 70`s by a Doctor in SA.
Took him to a few shows but the intention was to get the body done right so it would last another good few years
Ran him for a couple of years then he was confined to the garage whilst I messed on with my bike etc.
Last year I treated him to some new wheels and rubber
I had enough saved to send him off to get sorted.
Then it was off to those nice guys at the Hot Rod and Custom shop to get him fettled.
The chassis is in great condition with only a small patch welded in.
The engine is out of a `53 and will be fully rebuilt with some goodies on.
As I type this the engine is going off to get sorted !
