1964 Holden Eh

History

We found this car abandoned in a paddock, it was going to end up at the scrap yard when we saved it, it went through a full nut bolt rebuild on rotisserie and all rust cut out and re welded,and all work including paint, interior, engine etc was done at home in a backyard shed on a tight budget taking 18 months to complete. I have included some before photos from when we got it.
