1932 Packard Restoration Begins and Barris Custom Continues

 

The amazing crew at Manns Restoration continues to turn out some of the finest automotive restoration work in the country. In this video, they begin the teardown on the 1932 Packard roadster and they continue the reassembly of the Barris custom. We also give you a glimpse of the 1963 Ford Thunderbird, that we’ll be featuring in an upcoming video. We hope you find it interesting, thank you for watching!

Barn Find Polaris Project – Part 3 – Machining the Head & New Plastics

This is Part 3 in our Polaris Barn Find series. In this video, we show some of the freshly painted parts, test the compression, machine the head, and then show the plastics that will be going on next. If all goes well, we should have the Polaris completely back together for the next video. Then we’ll get to start having some fun with it.

Barn Find Polaris Project – Part Two – Clean up and Tear Down

Just wanted to give you a quick update on the Polaris project. As you can see in the video, we cleaned it up a bit and began tearing it down. We removed the snow plow, took off the plastics, and worked our way down to the engine. Next, we’ll throw on a new head gasket, swap the carb, get the exhaust how we want it, and then install the new plastics. We’re already getting anxious to see how it turns out. We hope you find our little “sleeper” project interesting too. Thanks for watching!

New Projects 1957 Chevrolet Bel Air and 1968 Chevrolet Camaro – Area 52 Restorations

I went over to my friend’s garage to check on his latest projects.  A while back, I did a series of vids on a 1979 Trans Am that he restored and it really turned out great.  I thought I’d check in to see what he was up to now. As you can see in the video, Jimmy is currently restoring a 1968 Camaro and a 1957 Chevrolet Bel Air. The Camaro is going to be a full-on show car, painted in Synergy green. The 1957 Bel Air was in the classic movie, American Grafitti as a background car. Anyway, I’ll be following the progress on both of these restorations as they move forward. I hope you find them interesting, thanks for watching!
