Historic Chrysler restored
« on: August 13, 2014, 06:08:57 PM »

We just finished a comprehensive restoration on Walter P Chrysler's Imperial limo that he had built for his wife Della. It's on it's way to Pebble beach and hopefully will get a lot of attention there.

It would have been a treat to see it in real life.
Bobby. . . That ramp is costing me $100 in steel.  And I still have to weld it together.  Grrrrrrrrrrr

three of us did...the link to the website has a chronicle of the resto, and in there you can see some of the restorers involved....

I only briefly appear in one pic.....

here's the other car we did at the same time: a 1929 Murphy bodied Duesenberg

Just heard both cars won 1st in their classes....and a 1954 Ferrari won Best in Show. First time for a Ferrari, and it hasn't been since 1968 that a post war car has won it.....
