I picked up this Barclay coupe with some damage to the front end. Someone in the '40's shot with a 22b gauge round and put a hole through the grill. As most restorer's would agree, it is difficult to actually restore damage like that and expect collectors to be interested. Sooo, the obvious choice was to not only fix the damage but overhaul the car into a mid-50's cruiser. It features actual wheels and tires from 1948. The chrome accents are "Bare-Metal Foil"tm and the paint is Model Masters. There are a few details to do but its pretty much ready for display. Enjoy!!
