The crew at Manns Restoration, in Festus, MO, are putting the final touches on the 1936 Cord 810. In this video, we took the car for it’s first test drive and it did really well. They have a few little bits left to add, then we’ll do a complete video on it. The restoration has also been completed on the nice little MG. The owner is now going to take the car home and install the engine and transmission. We hope to get another look at it after it’s up and running. Kurt McCormick stopped by to check on the progress on his Sam Barris custom Buick. The whole crew has done a wonderful job with it. Kurt was sure to thank Craig Wimmer for the amazing job he did with the wet sanding and buffing. The paint truly looks flawless. We hope you find this interesting, we’ll have more video on all of these cars in the near future. Thanks for watching!

We thought it was time for another update on the 1936 Cord at Manns Restoration, in Festus, MO. They really have made a lot of progress recently and it’ll be back on the ground before long. They solved some issues with the pre-selector gearbox and now they have it running and shifting fine. The Cord is a truly unique automobile that was way ahead of it’s time. It’s equipped with front wheel drive, flip up headlamps, suicide doors, the pre-selector style gearbox, and many other impressive features. It’s great to get the opportunity to study one in depth and up close. We hope you find it interesting, we’ll have more on this fantastic automobile in the days ahead. Thank you for watching!
I thought you might like a look at this very slick 1936 Chevrolet Street Rod Pickup. It’s obvious that a lot of time and money was spent getting the body ultra smooth and it really looks mean in black. It’s also equipped with a mustang II style front suspension with rack and pinion steering, American Racing Torq Thrust aluminum wheels, full custom interior, VDO gauges, a 9 inch for rear, all new bed wood, custom storage trunk in the bed, and much more. Under the hood is a nicely detailed 350 Chevy small block V8 with all the great aftermarket goodies you could want…finned aluminum air cleaner, aluminum valve covers, billet pulleys, coated headers, billet wire looms, and a polished intake and four barrel carb. This truck is ready to drive and show. I hope you find it interesting, thanks for taking a look!
