Barry’s 1955 Dodge Royal

Nov 15, 2018 | Customer Projects

The most important thing that someone needs to remember is to “Use the same products all the way through the restoration” Barry from Nelson Bodyworks explains.

It took 12 months to rebuild the 1955 Dodge Royal. It was stripped back and painted in Protec 606 (now GMIX Direct Gloss) with a two-tone colour scheme. Collen Green on the bottom and a custom green metallic on top.

In 2002 the owner Darren Hill got his car back and it is now a leisure car for those Sunday drives.

This vehicle was featured in the 2018 Auto West Calendar.
