Default A Beauty called Chevy Standard 6, 1936 Model

It took me a couple of years to fully restore this Chevy which otherwide was lying as junk in a closed sealed garage for last 44 years. It was not only a challenge but truely a pleasure to restore this car to its pristine glory. Thanks to Filling Station, USA from where i procured a large no. of parts and accessories.6 White wall original tyres were also imported from USA.

Result of a 72 years restorer are best visible in these attached photos.

Very clean job and a nice color combo you chose ! Can you put up some pics of the car before it was restored so we can see what condition it was in ?

Remarkable restoration and many Congratulations to you and the restorer. Would you have any pictures while the car was being restored, also details like how much time this project took etc would be good?

The car was lifted with a crane ? And also we have a photogenic service attendant who must have flooded the car with that spray. Nice job and missing wheel caps and small items can be sourced . While the price is secondary and no justice to the finish .

Cheers

Well for comparison, there is similar tourer with dual side mounts, available for sale in Delhi. Seems to have be recently restored. Since there is only one picture cannot make out if this is an original tourer, though windscreen looks original from this angle. The front mud guards are also different between the two cars.

Thanks "JAGGU" The pics during restoration are being attached. It took 2 years to complete this restoration. A large no of parts were brought by me personally from USA. All rubber parts kit from Stelle Rubber, USA and large items from The Filling Station. The white wall tyres were also imported from USA.

The spare wheel caps have been ordered from the filling station, USA and would be arriving next month. Good Observation !
