That ruined 160 hours. Add interior work and suspension work and I bet you could double that easily and then add the cost of the engine and tranny rebuild.

Let's see what Dad says, but I bet 500 hours is not out of the realm. That does not count paint and upholstery on the seats.

Rob you are not far off there. In a complete trailered concours restoration 1000 hours is not far off especially if you count the research and parts accusation hours.

Any one would be lucky to have one of Neil's cars that he has donated his time to!
