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.
In this fourth part in our Manns Tour series, we got to check out the early stages of a 1931 Studebaker restoration and then take a look at a George Barris custom. The Barris Buick had been left sitting for a number of years and, as a result, it had pretty extensive rust damage. Wayne has been doing an excellent job of replacing all the damage metal and it’s really coming along well. When the team at Manns gets done with it, it will be better than it was originally. I hope go back and continue following the progress on the car as they move forward. I hope you like the tour, thanks for watching!
