52. Hagmann’s ’50 Coupe

This was one of the few insurance jobs we’ve done. The 356 was stored outside in Basalt, CO under a pipe and canvas car cover which was tied to the rear deck lid. The wind came up, the deck lid was twisted and the pipes beat the car. This is when I learned about “betterment” i.e. insurance only paid for 70% of the paint job since it couldn’t be better than it was before the accident.
