It’s every automotive enthusiast’s dream to come upon a barn find. Back in the day, someone would literally find untouched classics in barns that had been forgotten by time for decades. Finding cars in an actual barn is rare these days—they’re more like “garage finds”, but everything else is still the same. So, imagine the excitement William Avila felt when he opened up a garage one day to reveal not one, but two 1987 Buick Grand Nationals—both with under 1000 miles, sequentially numbered. They’re essentially twins! However, they weren’t perfectly preserved, as William explains to GM EFI Magazine:

57 Bel Air Convertible - Frame-Off Restoration

The '57 Chevy Bel Air is a timeless piece of Americana. It's one of the few vehicles that's identifiable to even those who wouldn't consider themselves automotive enthusiasts. It has been featured in countless songs, TV shows, and movies. Even if you're not a die-hard classic car fan, the '57 Chevy is simply cool.

This 57 Bel Air convertible belongs to Steven Miller, of Hawthorne, California. Steven tells us he's part of the Rollerz Only car club, and picked up the Chevy as a restoration project after finding it for sale in Texas. Rather than gradually replacing bits and pieces, he dove in headfirst, and completed a full frame-off restoration of this classic convertible.

1969 Camaro Restoration - Before & After

Here at Classic Industries, we often get to see our customers' completed restoration projects in the parking lot of our Retail Showroom. It always brings a smile to our faces, and we do our best to document each vehicle and share it here on the Classic Industries blog. However, on certain occasions, we get a glimpse into these vehicles' origins, and have the opportunity to see how far they've come. These cases are especially interesting, since we get to see a "before and after" transformation take place as restoration occurs.
