DEAR RUBY DS IN FRANCE,
I HAVE VERY MUCH ENJOYED VIEWING YOUR POSTED RESTORATION PROGRESS
PHOTO-IMAGES AND COMMENTARY. YOU ARE DOING BEAUTIFUL METAL WORK FOR WHICH YOU DESERVE GREAT PRAISE.
MY RESPONSE TO YOUR POSTED THREAD IS PRIMARILY MOTIVATED BY MY SHAME THAT YOU SEEM TO HAVE BEEN SOLD A "BILL OF GOODS" BY A SELLER IN AMERICA WHO MISREPRESENTED THE CONDITION OF THE VEHICLE YOU BOUGHT. THE IDENTITY OF THE SELLER FROM WHOM YOU PURCHASED THE CAR IS NOT KNOWN TO ME BUT I KNOW MANY FELLOW CLUB MEMBERS IN THE STATES OF OKLAHOMA AND MINNESOTA. MY FEELING IS THAT YOU DESERVE AN APOLOGY FROM ME AS AN UNINVOLVED AMERICAN FOR THIS SITUATION. WHILE CAVEAT EMPTOR IS ALWAYS APPLICABLE TO ISSUES OF COMMERCE ,I THINK YOU WERE POORLY TREATED. MY APOLOGIES TO YOU AND WE ALL LOOK FORWARD TO YOUR CONTINUING PROGRESS IN THIS CORD CUSTOM BEVERLY RESTORATION. COULD YOU SHARE THE SERIAL NUMBER DATA FROM THE CAR? SINCERELY, JONATHAN RICHARDS IN MISSOURI, U.S.A.

Not a lot of work this summer but some parts are ready for the future re assembly.
The engine is also in progress and the winter comes, I can get back to work :mrgreen::mrgreen:

Your parts look amazing. Fine finish on the cad plating and it appears the black pieces are powder coated. Everything looks new. What are you doing to the engine? Bore, new pistons and re Babbitt the bearings?
