1947 Cadillac Padded Top Project
Customer Palle Johansen provided a beautiful 1947 Cadillac Convertible to Martinez Industries in late 2012 for a custom built padded top. A lot of bending and patience is put into building one of these tops. However, David enjoys the process since they are a work of art.
Building a header from scratch for the new Carson style top was also of major importance. The Cadillac came with a mechanical header and latch. Unable to adapt and not willing to destroy an original Cadillac header David created a new one from wood.
Once this was finished it was sent home to Denmark for the rest of its makeover. Congratulations to owner Palle Johansen for a beautiful car.
