Overhaulin Roadster

One of my favorite shows is Overhaulin with Chip Foose in the Discovery Channel. This is Season 5 Episode 7 for the SEMA show.

I like this car for a wide variety of reasons. For one thing I have one and two because of the subtle [ ... well, removing the roof of the car and making a 2 door from a 4 door isn't exactly subtle... ] changes done on the car and trim in general. Many of these mods are all up my alley and similar to my own project.

Features Included:

  • Color Combination Painted by Lanzini
  • Converted from a 4-door to a 2-door
  • Pinstriping by Tom Kelly & Skratch
  • New Ford Racing Motor
  • Foose Edition Stereo System
  • 100% Frame Off Build
  • Air Ride Suspension

Custom Mods I liked:

  • Grille bar shortened to bring it inside the grille opening and eliminating the center ornament. Full grille opening trim.
  • Chevy centers in the taillight lenses.
  • Simple tutone steel wheels with trim rings and small hubcaps.
  • Small kick up in the side moulding.
  • Keeping the stock dash and Skydome speedo intact.
  • Moving the filler into the trunk from the real tailpan.
