From outside it appears to be a high end muscle car, but a closer look inside reveals a modern luxury car. Starting with the highest optioned SRT8 the complete interior and drive train of a 2008 Dodge Charger has been implemented into this 1969 Road Runner. The exterior Road Runner has been rebodied with all new Auto Metal Direct body panels, which were finessed into place to sit on top of the SRT8 platform. The car was then covered in Sickens Calypso Red followed by five coats of Sickens High Solids Glamour Clear. Nestled under the stock Road Runner hood accented with the new generation Hemi emblems, is the modern day elephant, a 425HP 6.1L SRT8 HEMI that rumbles to life with remote start. The elephant is backed by a 5 Speed Automatic Transmission which also paddle shifts. The bird lacks … Read More »
Before we got our hands on this Chevelle, it had never been disassembled before. We took it apart and stripped it down to the metal to prepare for rust repair and a complete repaint with Ermine White. We were able to use the original windshield and rear window again after repairing the rust around the seals. With just over 50,000 original miles and all the original interior retained, it drove out the door looking as good as it did in 1966.
For this 1961 Impala, we were lucky enough to start with a fairly solid car and an already powder coated black frame. We started with all the necessary metal work to make this a structurally sound car. We did a few small panel repairs and gave it an entirely new floor. Before paint, we fit it with all upgraded suspension and a LS2 drivetrain. Once we were satisfied with the fitment, we tore it back down and prepped it for paint. It’s two toned all the way through the door jams with black and silver paint from the PPG Vibrance Collection and has a GM Victory Red stripe between the moldings. No minor detail on this Impala was overlooked. The engine covers are painted to match the exterior of the car. Once it was reassembled, it received its final buff … Read More »
This 1949 Chevy 5 window pickup came in for restoration needing bodywork and paint. It’s painted GM Victory Red with Switch Blade Silver accents under the hood. The paintwork has earned a feature in the 2015 PPG calendar. We started with reconditioning the frame. With exception to the hood, all original sheet metal has been used. The bed is all wood with the original sides retained. It received all new trim and moldings. Be sure to keep an eye out on our Facebook page for updates on this Chevy as it comes back for upgrades!
The 1970 Challenger came in partially restored. We removed all previously installed panels to insure we were starting with a solid structure as it arrived with some lingering rust. We then properly re-installed all of the sheet metal and began our rigorous restoration process. About 90% of this car is brand new sheet metal. We thoroughly cut and made all the body lines as accurate as possible to make sure the gaps are precise. Prior to paint, all the trim pieces were installed to make sure they fit perfectly. Then we took the trim pieces back off and started painting the car. It’s painted Top Banana Yellow with flat back stripes. The Raptor bedliner is even color matched Top Banana Yellow. The car was given back to the customer as a shell so he can complete the build on … Read More »
Here you can see pictures of the 1969 Camaro Super Sport that came in for bodywork, paint, and a new interior. It was completely disassembled to start with Raptor bedliner on the underside. We installed the drivetrain and moved onto the interior. We reconditioned the seats and installed all new upholstery and door panels. The exterior needed panel alignment and was then painted the same Ashen Grey Metallic as the 2012 Camaros. Stop by our Facebook to let us know what you think!
This pickup took on a major transformation from its former life on the farm as a work truck to a completely restored cruiser in just 21 days. The bed was removed and the truck was stripped down to bare metal. We painted the frame before moving onto bodywork and paint. The Raptor bedliner was color matched to the exterior’s GM Torch Red. The emblems on the fenders were shaved along with the emblem from the tailgate to keep the smooth look of the truck. The interior received a reupholstered seat, new door panels, and new carpet.
