- Rim cleanup
- Two-tone and pinstriping
- Weatherstripping cleanup
A total of almost $15,000 worth of work was completed during the reconditioning process and, as you can see from the photos above and below, the car looks fantastic.
While online bidding has already begun, the live portion of the auction of the will begin at 5:30 p.m. Wednesday at Benna Ford Roush, located at 3022 Tower Avenue in Superior.
