1911 Cadillac Model 30 Demi-Tonneau
This car has been maintained through the years, but never restored. So we probably performed the most work it has had, at one time. It was in and out of the shop, in 3 months.
Mechanically, most of the car was disassembled for paint. Installed a new/used camshaft, swapped timing gears, installed modern valves and cut valve seats to match, fix steering column gears, and reassemble entire car after being painted.
Cosmetically, there were quite a few surprises. Before the project began, we knew part of the wood body needed repaired, and we were aware that the fenders weren’t the best. Most of the metal work surprised us, after we got it all stripped down and sandblasted to bare steel. All 4 fenders needed major repair, but you can’t tell after seeing the finished product. The only pieces we didn’t paint, was the frame and wheels. When we were finished with the car, it then went to the upholsterer for all new seats and top.
