1936 Cord First Drive, MG Restoration Complete, & Spohn Custom

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!

Chevrolet 6400 Farm Truck at Manns Restoration

 

This old Chevrolet 6400 stake side farm truck is sitting out behind the shop at Manns Restoration, in Festus, MO. They acquired the truck a while back and they have plans of making it into a shop truck. There have been discussions about possible putting a more modern chassis underneath it, or possible even making it into more of a suburban style vehicle. It will be a while before this project actually gets underway, but I thought the truck was worth checking out. I hope you find it interesting, thanks for taking a look!

JeffCo Power Tour at Manns Restoration in Festus, MO

For the first time, Manns Restoration was one of the stops on the JeffCo Power Tour. This was the fifth year for the event and they really had a great turnout. The lot quickly filled up with hot rods, muscle cars, and classics. With over 140 cars participating, it really was an impressive sight. Of course, Manns Restoration opened up their facility, so that everyone could check out their latest projects. Everyone seemed to be having a great time, despite the gloomy weather. Of course a few participants couldn’t resist laying down a little rubber on the way out. We don’t encourage that sort of thing…but we will film it. Hope you enjoy the video, thank you for watching!
