Restoration is complete! The first Singer restored by Gassman Automotive and it turned out incredible.

The rest of the body tub and panels have been painted, the tub has been re-installed on the frame, and re-assembly has begun! George has been working to custom fabricate new seat covers and upholstery.

February 6, 2019: 

Metal work is complete, body work is complete, panels such as fenders and running boards have been painted. After discovering a small patch of original color paint, the restoration changed direction. We originally were going to restore it in the red it wore when it arrived, but the original paint has led us to discover the rarity of that color and thus of this car. The engine and suspension have been removed for the frame to be sandblasted, primed, and painted. It is being re-install/assembled. Once re-assembled, the body tub will be painted all assembled as to preserve the hard work of fitting all the panels together.

Metal work has begun first by adjusting all of the cars panel gaps including the hood, doors, and trunk. Metal inserts have also been fabricated and installed inside of the doors as braces.
