Default Restoration

One of the stipulations that John Weaver insisted upon was that the restoration be completed within 24 months....Frank, Matt, Matt and crew worked their magic and finished the car in 17 fun months.

We intend to do something special for the Olympic Gold 69 Yenko to honor the late original owner Rick Barratt who passed away recently on December 5, 2019....god speed to him and condolences to his family. Rick won Indy in 1975 . Troy Shattuck that had owned the car since 1976 will be helpful in the car build.
