Here is some pictures of the slow process of bringing back on the road my 1956 Sedan deVille.  I bought it in 2011 and it was in a sad state but ok for a project. It was an home made restoration in my garage.  Got help from many of my friends along the way. I greatfully thank them for their help.  Upholstery was professionally done in original paterns but not original colors. Body work was also done professionally by a friend but I did sand a lot.  The floors and support repairs was done by me.  First time in welding.  I must say that I learned a lot along the way and I know my car!
