Eddie’s 1974 Ford XB Coupe

Sep 15, 2018 | Customer Projects

“Talk to the professionals and talk to Auto West!” was the DIY advice given by Eddie Hopson, the proud owner of this 1974 Ford XB Coupe.

After around 8 months of restorations and a complete strip down due to surface rust and dodgy paintwork, as well as a rebuilt interior and a custom dash, the vehicle was completed.

This was 6 years ago, and Eddie has enjoyed those leisurely Sunday drives ever since.

For those who love the paintwork, it was done in Protec 606 (now GMIX Direct Gloss) 2K Solid with a clear coat. The colour name is EDS Red.
