With very little rust and no signs of any accidents or poor previous repairs, this Dino was a perfect specimen for a premium restoration. Everything on this Dino was meticulously removed, documented, and restored during the restoration process. Great lengths were made to ensure quality fit and finish including removal and restoration of all fiberglass. The chassis and body were mounted on a rotisserie, hand stripped to bare metal, and all chassis pipe measured then coated in epoxy along with all inner body sheet metal. Sandwich between the floor and firewall heat and sound retardants and deadener were used with 3M insulation throughout the cockpit floor and firewall then seam sealed to reduce heat and sound.

The motor was professionally rebuilt in 2015-2016 with new pistons, cam chains & tensioners, rods & crank bearings. It also received re-conditioned crank, cams, rods, and rebuilt heads. The block was machined and decked with the heads. The motor then was reassemble without any smog equipment, which enhances the maximum HP and performance out of the stock motor. Gear box was thoroughly gone through with minimum replacement parts… only new synchros were installed. All the suspension, brakes, steering rack, and Koni shocks were separately restored and reinstalled. The radiator, cooling and heating systems were equipped with new hoses and newly re-plated original clamps. All of the correct finishes, cadmium plating and paint sheen were researched and used. No powder coating anywhere! All coatings where wet sprayed in a two-part urethane then baked.

All the glass on the car is original with their original insignias and professionally polished as new.

All five Cromodora wheels were professionally refurbished with correct color and sheen then mounted with a new set of Michelin XWX’s

Front and rear bumpers were fitted to the body then double nickel plated and blocked followed by a double copper plating and blocked again, then chromed to ensure a beautiful flat surface.
