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!

I thought you’d like a look at this very slick 1972 Chevrolet Nova. It’s powered by a healthy 355 small block V8, equipped with an Weiand aluminum intake, Holley four barrel carb, and a set of coated headers. All that power is being sent through an Muncie M-21 four speed, back to a 10 bolt rear with 3:08 gears. The body is straight, the paint is slick, and the interior looks like new. It’s a well sorted car that is completely ready to go. I hope you find it interesting, thanks for taking a look!
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!
I thought you might like a look at this very slick 1970 Pontiac GTO. This beast is powered by the big 455 V8, topped with an aluminum intake and four barrel carb. All that power is being sent through a Turbo 400 automatic to a posi rear. The interior is in black vinyl and it’s looking like new as well. As you could hear in the video, it definitely sounds healthy too. This car could roast the tires without even trying. I hope you found it interesting, thanks for taking a look!
I thought you might like a look at this very unique 1963 Pontiac LeMans. It’s powered by a 194.5 Cubic Inch 45 Degree Four Cylinder, topped with a 4 BBL Carb, and running through dual exhaust. Pontiac, basically cut a 389 V8 in half…in fact, it uses the same head as the 389 and the 421. In this case, the four cylinder is backed by a four-speed manual and a set of 3.73 Gears with Posi. As you can see, it really is a great looking car and would look right at home on the dragstrip in the 1960’s. I hope you find it interesting, thanks for taking a look!
I found this Mercury Marauder sitting behind the paint shop at Manns Restoration and I thought you might like a look at it. These Marauders were essentially like a Luxury car with some muscle. These cars came standard with the 390 FE Series V8. This particular car is an X-100 Model, which means it’s packing the big 429 V8 with 360 horsepower. Inside, you’ll find a very comfortable interior and a very unique U-shaped shifter. This car is just in for some slight paint work to freshen it up. I hope you found it interesting, thanks for taking a look!
I thought you’d like a look at this nicely restored 1960 Jeep Willys Overland. It’s a four wheel drive, with Warn manual locking hubs. It’s powered by the original 226 Cubic Inch Super Hurricane Inline Six, backed by a Borg warner T-90 three speed manual. It’s just a nice, simple and rugged vehicle. It has been fully restored both inside and out and it’s really looking sharp. I hope you find it interesting, thanks for taking a look!
