This is a 1940's icon classic, with modern day upgrades, hence the name "Restomod". What is the difference between Restomod and restoration?  Traditionally, automotive restoration essentially refers to taking a collector car and bringing it back to life utilizing as many of the OEM parts as possible. A "Restomod goes on step further, by including modern drivetrain components. The process involves repair of the visible parts (e.g., body trim, interior, etc.), as well as the parts not easily seen (e.g., electrical, suspension, brakes, etc.). The anticipated results of a Restomod,  is a beautifully preserved automobile in factory-new condition with authentic parts just like it came off the showroom floor decades ago, utilizing modern drivetrains, increasing reliability, comfort and performance.
