1960 Mercedes-Benz 220S Cabriolet

This regal old Cabriolet was restored years ago. While it still looked pretty good it was plagued with issues that stemmed from shortcuts taken in the previous restoration. Unfortunately the structural elements were so heavily modified that reconstructing to original specifications was a huge roadblock. Happily, we were able to use a well preserved Cabriolet owned by another customer to create a road map for our progress on this project. We completely stripped every surface to bare metal. Then we fabricated and aligned the frame and panels properly. Many body panels were no longer available so we skillfully handcrafted them in house. Now that all of the metal has been rebuilt and the body painstakingly refinishing we will be returning the exterior to its original color Weisgrau DB158, a lovely off white. The original interior was Swedisch Birke grun, green leather with birch wood trim. When finished this lovely old boulevard cruiser, which we call Lucy, will look and drive like it just rolled out of the dealership.
