1956 Ragtop Oval for Jo in Fargo, ND

Pics Updated 10/10/2012

CAR IS COMPLETED!

Got this car in earlier 2011, Joanna has been a fan of our work for a couple years now, she touched base with me in 2010 wanting an oval window ragtop. Well we found one in St. Paul MN with most of the hard work done already.

When we got the car is was already blasted down to metal and gutted, so off to the paint shop it went. She is finished!

Here are some pictures in the gallery below.

Hi Chris ! Beautiful car ! My only comment is, why do people opt to add all the accessories, and skimp on the hidden stitching for the seat covers ? After owning both, I know the hidden stitching is by far more comfortable, and worth the little bit extra cost ! Plus, heat seams weren't stock till the 60's. Just saying. Keep up the great work !
