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!

Test Driving 1957 Chevrolet Corvette Fuelie 283 V8 – Extremely Rare

I thought you might like a look at this very rare 1957 Chevrolet Corvette.  It’s powered by the original 283 V8, topped with Rochester Fuel Injection, and backed by a 2 spd Powerglide automatic.  It really is a beautiful car and you won’t see many of them running around.  I had to use a little more background music than I generally like to, because the wind was really strong that day.  I hope you find it interesting, thanks for taking a look!

1939 Packard 120 Convertible – World Class Restoration by Manns Restoration in Festus MO

I thought you’d like a look at this truly amazing automobile. This 1939 Packard 120 Convertible Sedan is the treasured heirloom of a very prominent East coast family. Mike Manns, and the crew at Manns Restoration in Festus, MO, have done an excellent job of returning this beauty to it’s former glory. Billy, from Billy Cox Signature Interiors, did an excellent job on the interior of the car as well. This is truly a world class restoration from top to bottom. It was such a privilege to have access to an automobile of this quality and getting to go for a ride was the icing on the cake. I’m sincerely impressed with the skills and abilities of the entire crew at Manns. The transformation that this vehicle has undergone is truly remarkable. I hope you find it interesting….thanks for watching!
