Hi,

I have posted more images on my instagram account: project_therapy

Paint was the only change, it was in good shape but needed a few engine seals and good old polishing. I painted the rims, thats about it.


Thanks Kevin

Here is sled´s car in Finland when found in 2007 from a used car lot, cost only about 4 K in this condition but things have changed since. Hesa updated the car and drove it for 9 years, some of those in Belgium and sold it in 2016 to a Finnish flipper who told him he would keep it but instead immediately sold it to BBT for double what he paid Hesa. I saw this car in person in 2011, nice car and now has a good home.

Originally delivered to Oy Autola Ab in Helsinki on 24.11.1951 and according to the Autola records the first owner was Mr. Palmroth.

Now the car is obviously updated:

I call him Old Man Maynard. I’ve had him for a few years, got him before my Chestnut brown car. He needs some welding, someone cut out the rear window bar.

What is the center wheel color on these Azure blue cars? Clearly some sort of light gray, maybe similar to the seat frames?

Does anyone know the name or have a current mixing formula?

Thanks much.

My '51 has the same color combo. It's the same as the seat frames, shifter, steering wheel etc.
