Previously in Part 1 we showed you the first steps of building the frame. Prior to that we did an article on Chalfant Motor Company and told you about the work James (Jim) Hery has been doing to bring back some valuable cars from the 20s and 30s.
He just sent us some new photos of his most recent progress. The results are fabulous. He continues to use his artistic mechanical skills to save and create some of the World’s most beautiful cars. He is truly an artist and master of metal shapes. James is not only restoring a 1935 Bugatti T57 Cabriolet, he is also constructing a prototype plus five exact replicas of the car!
Here is the second series of photos on the restoration of the Bugatti, this is the body that gets some of James’s loving and serves as the model for the prototype body he is building. Much of this original body’s repair panels were had formed by him.
