This Fireflite was rebuilt from the ground up, utilizing a couple of donor cars to complete this car with all steel no rust panels, a solid frame where even the inside was epoxied to prevent rust on the frame. All panels were dipped then meticulously sanded and painted to what you see here as your crescendo in 1959 form.
