Once completed, this 1939 Cadillac Series 61 Imperial proudly shows the bodywork that was needed to eliminate the rust holes and the hammer marks to straighten out imperfect panels. Every bit of chrome and trim, inside and out, has been copper plated and there are over 1,100 rivets running along body lines and panel gaps, each installed using a pneumatic hammer and a buckey bar. Note the air tank in the trunk for the hidden train horn.
