Nice work, is the car already on the road ? I'm sure even Pavan Kadam will be impressed with this restoration !

Wow,

Nice project.

The bodylines are so clean and neat

Seems like a 1965-66 Ragtop, But, one thing i noticed, why have you not tried to retain the original style dashboard?

Keep updating, we are eagerly waiting.

Best of luck.

Great work seems to be going on . The colour and the material seems to be the same as the Studebaker Champion. anyway how does that matter ? What matters is the quality of work and that another car is getting back on the road.

Hope to see some more reguler updates

Best of luck

Yes, the same interior style as similar blue. Brighter combo to open the interior up.

Please help me with the correction from the original style dash element. These were the slots I have and had and have not added anything. I do intent in adding a radio on the car
