The car is in storage a short distance from their shop. I cannot stress enough that they did an extensive amount of work to the car it was in their shop about a year and a half.We can take the car over to their shop to verify work. You can also have an independent inspection to verify work
The dash has no cracks. The glass has no chips or cracks on any windows or windshield. The car runs easily up to 70 mph and has no shakes or vibration at all. The car had an alignment done as part of the mechanical restoration.The wiring on the car was completely gone through. Much of the wiring was replacedI Forgot to mention I have a pair of Lamborghini door hinges for the car and the box they came in never installed on this car they go with it the car. I forgot to take pics of themAll the lights and guages work. Car recently passed inspection. (Except clock). Windshield wipers work properly. Car can be driven daily.
