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.
I thought you’d like a look at the latest restoration job to be completed at Manns Restoration in Festus, MO. This beautiful car is a 1932 Packard Standard Eight Roadster. It’s powered by a Straight 8 engine, backed by a manual transmission. As you can see in the video, the crew at Manns have done it again. They really have turned out yet another amazing automobile. I hope you find it interesting, thanks for watching. Be sure to check out their other projects on the website.
I was out a Gateway Motorsports Park today for the USAC Maxxas Silver Crown Series Gateway 100. It was a 100 mile race run on the 1.25 Mile oval. Before the race, they had some vintage Indy cars that were taking some laps, so I decided to film some of them. This is just one of the many awesome cars they had on hand. It’s a San Diego Steel Products “500” Roadster. This car was raced from 1973 through 1983 as the Roberts Steel Erection Roadster. It is powered by a Chevy V8, that they used to challenge the Offenhauser engines being used at the time. It’s a beautifully restored car and obviously runs great as well. I hope you find it interesting….thanks for watching!
