Students in Penn College's automotive restoration technology major, several of them graduating later this month, are spending the final days of the semester prepping a unique vehicle for its day in the late-spring sun. Working in the paint-bay area of College Avenue Labs, the students are putting the finishing touches on a 1953 Verrill Wolf Wagon. The rare car, affiliated with the Swigart Museum in Huntingdon, arrived on campus in August and is being repainted and detailed for the June 13-15 Concours d’Elegance at The Hotel Hershey. Although about 22 feet long, the vehicle fit (with room to spare) into the spray booth, where it received multiple coats of single-stage urethane paint for an old-school finish befitting its era.
