The sexy rear butt full of lines and aero addendum, but not of the fibreglass variety. Note the fuel-filler cap!
It's long sweeping lines, chrome livery, beautifully sculpted shoulders and clamshell bonnet denotes its sports heritage of that era.
Frameless doors with rubber seals all still intact!
Beautifully redone interior with all gauges replaced and despite its slightly worn steering wheel, everything else is wrapped in alcantara AND it still has a fully functional air conditioning system!
It's simply an honor just to meet such an automotive enthusiast which even after half a century, still has the drive and determination to rebuild and restore such classics. Viewing it will only be half the story, imagine driving this mechanical belle. It starts with just one crank!
He has another Austin 1100 in the works, as well as a Chevrolet with carriage wheels (26" bling yo!) in the paintshop, a Mercedes W136 in restoration with spare parts from Germany already flown in, a 1941 Mercedes convertible that's fully restored and resting at home, and yet another Mercedes W110 that's for sale (more on this later).
Cheers on the fantastic work done, Unc. Keep up the good work and have fun in your mechanical, and maniacal restorations!
