Wilson Auto Repair Helps Replace a Cherished Car for a Longtime Customer

A longtime customer recently came to us with some sad news.  A cherished car of his was wrecked in an accident.  This car is very special to him because he ought it brand new and used it to drive away from his wedding.

He wanted this car repaired but that wasn’t possible.  So, he bought another car that was just like the original and we transferred parts and made the car look even better than ever before.

The car is a 1984 Mercury Capri and we got to work to help our longtime customer replace this cherished vehicle.  As you can see from the first image, the car received a ton of damage.  We were concerned and happy to hear that no one was seriously injured.  We can replace a car, but you can’t replace a life.

We salvaged what we could from the original car and some of the old interior was upgraded and transferred.

To give the car an even more upgraded look, the craftsmen at our shop built a custom console for the car.  We eliminated the park brake handle to make room for the cup holders and installed an electric park brake system.

We also built a custom sub-woofer speaker box was also built and we added some LED lighting to the interior of the car to give it a cool glow.

The customer was particularly interested in how we finished out the hood.

In the end, we were able to bring this Mercury back to life using what we could from the original.  In the end, a new rendition was painted, and we installed a high performance 302 engine.  This Mercury is better than ever before, and we couldn’t be happier that we were trusted to rebuild a prized possession.
