With the original owner of 45 years at the wheel. Motorcar Manor owner Matt Maisano looks at what may well be the only original-owner GT350 in existence.
Solid as a rock, it is all there with its 351 Cleveland engine, automatic transmission, air conditioning and power top.
45 years old, yet it still boasts its original paint. However, age has created cracking, also called crazing, in the paint. About 30 years before, the owner had tried waxing the crazed paint with a retail product. Unfortunately it emphasized the crazing, so he stopped and for the next 30 years the car was not waxed or compounded. He rarely washed it. The white interior was all original and…unmaintained. It had started to yellow.
Now, with 101,000 miles and 30-years of neglect evident on the GT350, the owner approached Matt Maisano based on a friend’s recommendation. “I have been invited to show my car at a concours,” He said, “and I have been told that you are very good at taking a neglected vehicle and making it pretty again.”
Matt was pleased to accept the challenge.
Provided here are the results of Matt’s revitalization of the GT350.
