53. BJ’s ’64 Coupe

BJ is my son and a few years ago moved from Minnesota to Colorado. He now works with me in the shop. After a year of developing his welding and restoration skills we thought it would be good for him to restore a 356 from start to finish with hands off by me-just coaching. We found a ’64 coupe just ten miles away which had been stored outside for 12 years. It had the typical rust which BJ repaired and it is now painted the original Ivory and has a black interior. BJ and his wife, Jen, had the option of selling the finished 356 or keeping it. They kept it and call it “Marshmallow.”
