Notes: this estimate is very unique in that this vehicle is an antique, making labor guides virtually obsolete and/or unreliable. At the same time, given the age  of the automobile, specific precautions need to be taken. Most importantly, is finding a repair facility qualified to work on this vehicle. Labor rates and times from a qualified source will be at a premium. This estimate reflects such a source, and cautions that significant adjustments may be required.
