BE­HIND THE GARAGE DOOR

New Zealand Classic Car - - CONTENTS - Words and photo: Steve Sankey

The team at Clas­sic and Amer­i­can Restora­tion Ser­vices (C. A.R.S.) in Pukekohe is cur­rently work­ing on this 1974 Ram­bler Mata­dor, which is in the fi­nal stages of restora­tion.

The Ram­bler suf­fered from ex­treme rust is­sues and required the fab­ri­ca­tion of many new pan­els such as rear quar­ter pan­els, door skins, and front guards.

The en­gine and driv­e­train have been com­pletely re­built, while the in­te­rior has re­ceived a new set of car­pets and hood lin­ing.

In ad­di­tion to the 1974 Ram­bler, Steve Sankey and his team have also been work­ing on a 1972 Ram­bler Mata­dor, which be­longs to the same fam­ily, and has also un­der­gone of full ro­tis­serie restora­tion.
