restoraton 53 1500

#1 Post by Greg Foye » Sun Jul 22, 2018 10:13 pm

I am new to forum so if I'm duplicating I'm sorry. What I'm looking for is a pre A restoration shop to take on my 53 1500 Super which has turned into a bucket list project. Preferably some place close to Wis. although I have started the conversation with GK it would be great if I can find one somewhat local to WI. Ideas?

Huge mistake. To look for someone local. Instead find someone reputable and save yourself a lot of heartache. You’re going to want it done right. Ask me how I know

You can't go wrong with Stalltek, and they're not far from you in Iowa City.

Neil and Lee Schlabaugh run it. See Registry Magazine Vol 36 #6 p30. They restored this lovely '51 coupe recently. See the "Magazine" link above for old Registry Magazine issues in PDF form.

I also have a Wisconsin '53 coupe - 50960 from July 1953. 1500 Super. I'm also in the process of restoring it.

Tell us about yours!
