Great news gang. The Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance has officially accepted the 1952 Voodoo Gardner for presentation on the field at their event in March, 2020. We at Undiscovered Classics are excited to be jointly showing the car with owners Brian and Sue Ford of Christchurch, New Zealand, and look forward to sharing more of its history to those interested.
The car is shown below and is nearly finished. Good friend Tom Cook is completing the interior and some mechanical finishing. Tom has completed work on many of our other cars too including the Leo Lyons Custom Mercury, our Bangert Manta Ray and Guy Dirkin’s Victress S1A. The windshield will also soon be fitted so the car will officially debut to the public at Amelia in March, 2020.
It’s come a long way since we originally acquired it many years ago. Here are two photos of what it looked like then:
We plan on sharing photos of our restoration progress from now until the Voodoo’s debut at Amelia, so stay tuned. Much is happening down here in Tampa, Florida at Undiscovered Classics where there’s lots of hard work going on with our team – but incredible fun too 😉
