WCSTA -10- 1958 356A 1600 SUPER MEISSEN BLUE CABRIOLET

#1 Post by Arseniohernandez » Wed Apr 01, 2015 5:05 pm

This was car was bought after an eBay auction when the winning bidder backed out, and I bravely jumped on the sword in March 2013. It was being sold my Monte Shelton Jaguar. It was listed on eBay as a rust free restoration project. I bought it sight unseen. That was a big mistake. The pictures only tell half of the truth! The car is still being addressed by Parkers restorations in Paramount for rust. Some metal work has been started. I seriously do not see the finaih line. But we are committed to seeing this diamond in the rough on the road some day..

After taking it to the shop for just floors. Realized it was it so hard in the front at one point of its life it was pushed back 1 1/2 on the driver side!
