This car is a part of «KAMYSHMASH» collection, which is the biggest private collection of antique cars in Russia (officially registered by Russian book of records).
The car was bought at an Ebay auction in April 2011 in Mount Hood, USA, Oregon.
Imported to Russia in July 2013.
In March 2015 the restoration began, and in November 2017 it was completed.
A full cycle of restoration works was done. The chassis was overhauled. All the decorative elements of the body were re-chrome plated.
The body was completely restored with replacement of damaged elements and elimination of all foci of corrosion. The car is painted in bright green color, which underlines sporting character of the coupe body.
There is a detailed photo report about all stages of the restoration.
The upholstery of the seats and the door trim are made of natural beige and chocolate-colored leather, brown carpet on the floor.
Workshop “KAMYSHMASH” represents the car restored by a team of restoration masters on the basis of “Kamyshinsky Mashzavod” in the city of Kamyshin, Volgograd region, Russia.
This is not a replica and not a remake, but a real car of the year 1968, which passed a full cycle of restoration works and corresponds to the original state in which it came off the assembly line. Deviations from the original condition are only possible in four criteria: The interior is made of natural leather, even if originally it was made of leatherette; The body paint is made with modern dyes and the color may differ from the factory color; The car is fitted with modern tyres; The car is equipped with air conditioning (even if it was not in the original equipment).
