This is a compilation of some of the recent builds from Manns Restoration, in Festus, MO. We featured the 720+ horsepower Chevelle convertible, the LS3 powered 64 C10 pickup, the supercharged 6.1 Hemi powered Orangasm Cuda, and a beautiful V12 powered Ferrari 550 Maranello. The skilled crew at Manns can handle any restoration that comes their way. We hope you find them interesting, thank you for watching!

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!
We thought you might like a look at this 1969 Jaguar E-type, that is currently being restored at Manns Restoration, in Festus, MO. It’s powered by the DOHC 4.2 Inline Six, equipped with triple SU carbs. The exhaust gases are expelled through a beautiful set of split headers, then back through the full dual exhaust. It has been upgraded to a Tremec five-speed manual transmission for better performance, highway cruising, and fuel economy. This car is also equipped with Jaguar’s fully independent rear suspension, so it should handle like it’s on rails. It’s going to be a beautiful car when it’s completed. We’ll come back and give you another look when it’s ready to hit the road.
We just thought you might like to hear a clip of the Trans Am idling and revving. After Jordan’s accident, he had to replace the exhaust on the Trans Am. Now, the car has Hedman long tube headers, dual 3″ Hedman X-tension pipes, Jones Full Boar mufflers ( Flowmaster Super 10 copies), and 3″ turndowns. Overall, we’re pretty happy with the sound now. Jordan also put on a different hood since the last video. He still has some modifications to make to it, but it’ll work just fine. When the snow melts, we’ll get it out on the road and do a driving video. Thanks for watching!
It was a nice day out, so we decided to take the Trans Am for a little road test. Jordan is still waiting on some parts, but he cobbled things together just so he could drive it. The acceleration run at the beginning was with a shorty header on one side and a long tube on the other. With open headers, the size difference left to right didn’t seem to effect it any. Hopefully you find this interesting, we thought it was time for an update. Thanks for watching!
Jordan was out cruising the Trans Am around on some backroads yesterday and he had the GoPro running. It got a little squirrelly on him a couple of times and he managed to find a cop out amidst the corn fields somehow. We through some burnout clips at the end, just to keep things interesting. Thanks for watching, we appreciate it!
Jordan decided to take the Trans Am out for a little road test today. He is still trying to keep the RPM’s to a reasonable level and not spin it too hard yet. He has put quite a few break-in miles on it so far though, and it seems to be doing well. We hope you find this interesting, we’ll have many more to come. Thanks for watching!
