We have not posted anything on this truck until now. So just to get you started notice the custom work done on the air cleaner.
Paint is complete on the 79 Trans Am. Notice that the owner decided to convert the front to a 77 Trans Am nose, to be like the original Bandit Trans Am from the original Smokey and the Bandit movie. For now the phoenix decal is acclimating, relaxing to lie flat because it arrived in a tube. Also we need the temperature of the decal and the car to be the same when we apply it.
Work continues on the 1955 Cameo Pickup. Last time we showed you the disassembly. It is starting to come together. Check out the smooth, custom firewall. The bed is getting some custom touch as well.
Work on the GMC C1500 Pickup continues. When last you saw it it was in pieces while getting painted:
The Shelby is ready for the owner to pick up.
Here is a quick video of our painters applying the final coat of clear.
The 1967 Shelby GT 500. The perfect blend of sport and muscle, 1967 Shelby GT 500 was designed and built to satisfy a taste for high performance American cars. Carroll Shelby did what he did best, he designed a car that would scare even the most experienced driver. The 1967 GT 500 had a list of upgrades over the regular Mustang that included the reworked 428-cid V-8. Shelby added the cast-aluminum medium-rise intake from Fords 427 and twin 600-cfm Holley four-barrel carburetors to produce a conservative rating of 355bhp.
Shelby added numerous performance upgrades over the regular Mustangs as well as many cosmetic attributes that makes it stand out over the competition still today, just as it did 50 years ago.
