Work on restoring and reconstructing the unique Streamliner commenced some 75 years after the car’s actual development. This project is one of the most elaborate of its kind and initially involved sifting through the archives to find sketches, photos and other documents so that the 540 K could be restored and reconstructed based on the tried-and-trusted methods of the past. So originality was assured right from the start.
