Hello ,I have been restoring classic cars since i was 21.
I worked for G and J restorations in Hudson mass back in the late 1980,s. don't want to name drop on line until we talk but we built cars for some of the fussiest people.
Our main focus was 111 body sedans and convertibles and 113 Body Pagodas.Myself I have owned many Pagodas and a 1971 280 SE 3.5 convertible.
We did metal work,bodywork,paint,valve jobs, mechanical tune ups,replaced interiors,Engine bay detailing my favorite job.
I did one pagoda for an eye,ear,nose and throat surgeon.He really was taken.
Some one had riveted tin floors and sheet metal and covered it with undercoating.I rebuilt replaced all the metal.It was a complete restoration.new interior and top also.
One gentleman bought a fake 1971 280 SE 3.5 convertible off the streets of new york and when he got home he couldn't put the top down.It had no bucket.
Back in the late 80,s parts were still available so we did a conversion.
I was responsible for all the metal work,bodywork and paint.but i did it all.
We also died leather interiors using leatheque dye and products.
I also took a 1971 3.5 SE Sedan and combined it with a 1968 convertible body.
Everything is interchangeable.That is the car in the picture.
Back in the old days they did not have 2 stage paint so we did our wood sets with fiberglass resin.
Extremely high gloss.no orange peel.I am able to re-veneer and restore wood sets.Brush in fake grain.
Fiberglass resin gives a deeper shine.

I am 63 now retired but want to build a couple more cars.A little bored.Mercedes only from now on.Not really interested in newer cars.
Vintage Mercedes Benz have class like no other car out there.
Right now I am only looking to take in one build.You get all my attention until the car is complete.
New Hampshire is sales tax free on parts and service so have your parts shipped directly to me.
I take pictures of everything i do so you know how your money is spent and how the job was done.
I am doing this to stay busy.I dont want to work on 4 cars at a time ,just yours,I will take in back up projects ,but the main build is first
If i need to wait on parts etc

To do amazing work there is no short cut.no missed steps.Using inferior materials will give you lesser quality of a job.so why bother
It is better to spend the extra money.
If you have a car that is special to you.I would think you need a shop like mine to bring your car to where there is no confusion.

Please be the first to call to get in.You will be in good hands and you will love my work.Thank you
