Reassembling a rarity
Reassembling a rarity

Automotive restoration technology students’ recent work on a truly original vehicle has attracted extensive attention from Hemmings Daily, “the world’s leading classic car news source.” Seven photos of instructor Roy H. Klinger’s students putting the finishing touches on a 1953 Verrill Wolf Wagon accompany a research piece by Hemmings’ Kurt Ernst that illuminates the little-known history of the distinctively offbeat car. “What a great project to ensure that the passion for classic vehicles will be ingrained in the souls of those students,” an online commenter wrote. “The instructors and everyone from the administrators to the accounting department there at the school really have to be congratulated. They’re helping to lock in a lifelong interest among those students that’ll never go away.” Another added: “It is a fantastic looking car. I am glad it has survived and kudos to the team at Pennsylvania College of Technology for doing such a super job on the restoration.”
