The Dorn's have had this awesome 1971 Ford F100 with 90,000 original miles since they lived in the mountains of Colorado where their first grandkid named it, Clifford. Arden and Roxanne bought it because it reminded them of Arden's dad, and the simple life growing up in Nebraska. Well, the altitude in San Antonio did a number on the engine, and the paint was just terrible. Valor performed a cosmetic windows-out restoration that put "Clifford" back on the road again. The Dorn's, who founded the Hill Country Opera, now show her off regularly at opera events. Arden teared up when he saw his dad's favorite saying carefully crafted onto the toolbox in Ford font lettering. We love to custom work like this, particularly when it really has a meaning to a customer.
The Prosch's have had this great little 1973 450SL for a number of years, maybe decades, and it just didn't ever run or handle quite right. The car really looked pretty good, but needed the right wheels and tires, all new bushings and suspension, as well as a tune-up. We like to call this project a mechanical restoration because outside of some small cosmetics, it just needed to run and handle right. With a few short weeks, and a good project plan, Valor performed a punchlist of repairs that got her running like she was supposed to and the Prosch's are having a ball with her all over the Hill Country.
The Newman's 1960 Corvette hadn't run in years, but it always had a soft spot in Jerry's heart...I mean, he had it since 1966. Their goal was to just get her back on the road again. With skepticism, they gave Valor a shot at doing just that. After finding rodents in the engine, bent push rods, locked up hubs, a stuck clutch, and a leaking gas tank, Valor got her right and got to see the smile on Jerry and Becky's faces when they drove her home. What a great day that was, and we know the Newman's are going to really enjoy this investment grade classic.
