1957 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, many body panels were no longer available so we skillfully handcrafted them in house. With all of the metal rebuilt we will be refinishing, painting and fitting the interior back in. When finished this lovely old boulevard cruiser, which we call Lucy, will look and drive like it just rolled out of the dealership.
