We are undertaking a very big restoration of this Hornet. As you can see from the photos, there are acres and acres of sheet metal on this historic machine. We started by removing the engine and all panels and doors. Then we sent it off to media blasting.
These cars pioneered the notion of uni-body construction. The front frame assembly could be moved, but the rear of the car was uni-body. That made for much lower center of gravity - leading to absolute domination of NASCAR at the time.
Stay tuned as we do metal repair after media blasting, then move into paint, mechanical and interior.
