The Making of the First NABCC Club Car, the 1956 Buick Century

By Julie Evans

More insight into the making of the first NABCC club car

The first castings have been made.

Here you can see the beginning of the soft top roof piece that Darren is making from brass.

Front grills and bumpers waiting to be sent to the platers.

The bodies are on the benches, all the small parts have come back from the platers and are ready to be glued onto the bodies.

The interiors are checked for size against the body.

The windshields and tonneau covers are being tried for size.

Any hand painting, i.e. sun visors on windshields, black wash on grilles, licence plates and taillights are done on the benches.

And the final 1956 Buick Century, top up and top down!
