This spectacular example was the recipient of a total frame-off restoration that spanned 9 years beginning in 1993 with the car being finished in 2002. Approximately 3000 man-hours were invested in the restoration and the workmanship is outstanding. It was the feature car in the “Woodie Times” in January 2009, and also appeared in the Pontiac Oakland Car Club magazine. This Woodie was originally owned by a doctor’s wife in Bangor Maine, and subsequently purchased by Grant Rae, a master woodworking craftsman in Ontario, who performed the restoration. It is very evident that a huge amount of time and talent was put into the manufacture, fitting and refinishing of the White Ash and Mahogany panels that form the sides and tailgate of this “Woodie”. The brightwork, paint and interior received the same dedication to quality, making this one of the nicest examples you will ever find.
