Porsche Crest Issabelle- Lost now Found. A Bruce Jennings Speedster

this is one of the most historic Porsche i have ever worked on and probably ever will. We received it about a year and a half ago and has over gone several hours of intense operation. Here is what it looked like when we first received it.







Then came the tare down process which was a tedious job since all the nuts and bolts had disappeared in rust. Then off to the Sand blaster it was. we were kinda nervous we weren't going to receive anything back due to the amounts of rust ha-ha.
when we got it back it was Fire up the torches and plasma's and cut away boys!
What was left of the old floor pans was cut off and new ones were carefully welded in.









all the metal and body work have been completed and send out for paint to its original color.






It is currently being assembled and getting ready for upholstery. All the final touches are being installed along with a race motor that we are waiting on. but this is what she currently looks like at the moment.

That Copperstate tour sounds like a good time. Heavy hitters in there for sure.
