Unusual Retro Car Restoration (25 pics)

Companies that restore and bring retro cars back to their authentic looks often have to deal with a heap of rusty iron that hardly reminds a vehicle as their source material. It’s difficult to imagine how much effort it takes them to create a shiny great-looking car. But thanks to Precision Restorations Company from St.Louis that has finished a very unusual project, it’s now possible.

 

The 1967 Oldsmobile Toronado coupe was, apparently, found in a rundown condition. It’s hard to judge because only half of its exterior and interior is restored. The second half is left in its original form. It is very different from the side of the car where restorers have applied their skills. Now everyone can see that it is not easy to restore a retro car.

We can only add that this Oldsmobile Toronado coupe built in the ‘60s was a front-wheel drive car and had an 8 cylinder 7.0-liter engine with 385 HP.

If you ran a restoration shop, that would be one amazing way to show off what you were capable of...
