Ferrari 275GTS restoration
This was basically a nice, structurally sound, usable car when the customer brought it in to us. Our brief was simple - make it perfect and as close to 'new original' as possible. This included full engine/mechanical preparation complete with correct plating of components. Also we bare-metalled the bodywork, researched the exact original colour and repainted it to concours standard. We specially commissioned original Connolly 'Vaumol Luxan' leather to original specification - the first genuine Connolly leather available for 17 years, which includes the hand-washed 'grain' that was only present on these hides from new.
We have been fastidious with the details on the project: for example using the exact original fuel pipes and crimpings; retaining the factory finish vinyl (not leather) to dash top and painstakingly reachieving the (non gloss) satin wood dash finish.
