1954 SIAM Restoration Process-As Found

SIAM 100 Annotated

This picture was taken by Don Suiter in 1997 when he bought the car.  No work was done until 2004.


Note that the rear firewall is just a canvas cover.  The rules sure have changed over the years.

What was interesting on the SIAM when I got it was all the interior gearbox covers and driveshaft aluminum covers were 20 gauge metal loosely placed into position.


Rear canvas "firewall" removed exposing the ladder frame, roll bar, gas tank. Let me ask you: Trust that roll bar? Rear “firewall” canvas removed exposing roll bar structure, really?
