I started the restoration from an ugly duckling found in a farmer’s field in October of 2016. Located just outside of Calgary Alberta, Canada the car had sat for years and much of the body was covered with a patina of rust and flaking paint. After bringing it home, new lifters, ignition, carb and fluids soon had it purring like a kitten.
I wanted to build my new Caddy with a real custom flavor, and have installed air suspension, shaved the outside door handles, and installed disk brakes. I only have a couple of hours most evenings to work on it, but I am pleased with my progress so far. I still have work to do, but most recently squirted it down with several layers of Nukezilla Chameleon paint, that I am not sure if I like yet, but perhaps it will grow on me.
