68 HEMI Charger


Picture_653~2.jpg

This car was purchased by one of our customers in Sweden. We made a big mistake in not going out to Ohio to take look at this one. The seller and builder assured us that it was a good car and needed nothing. The car was supposed to be fresh with only 500 miles on the build but that was far from the case as you can see from the pictures. We ended up disassembling most of the bolt on sheet metal along with a lot of other bolt on components for a complete and thorough engine and undercarriage detailing. We also rewired the front wiring harness, changed out most of the front end hardware, shortened the gas tank straps, replaced the hood hinges, re-balanced the wheels, installed valve cover tube sleeves, and gave it a front end alignment. Now it's off to Sweden!!!!!

Picture_688~1.jpg

1949 HUDSON COMMODORE CONVERTIBLE

Update: 2015 Boston World of Wheels CASI Award Winner, Best Restored, and Best in Class.

In the mid 50's the NASCAR races were dominated not by GM, Ford, or Chrysler but by Hudson. Hudson won 27 of 34 grand national races including the DAYTONA. Hudson went on to win 40 of 48 AAA stock car races. The engine in all of these victories was an in-line 6 fitted with dual carbs: known as TWIN - H - POWER. This Hudson will be fitted with this very same engine.

Father Jude brought us his very rare 49 Hudson convertible to have all the sheet metal, body work and paint work done. Everything on this Hudson will be meticulously rebuilt and restored to better than new condition. It's going to be a nice one!!!!

1967 GT-500E SUPER SNAKE from Unique Performance
This is the same car that we had here in the shop a while back for warrantee issues. In trying to get the car to run correctly and to it's full potential and after repairing countless problems we discovered the compression ratio was 11:1 when we blew a head gasket, With major engine issues and was sent back to Unique Performance to have the motor repaired under warranty . The motor was sent out to George Anderson at Gessford Machine to be rebuilt. While all of this was happing Unique Performance went out of business and the car was seized by local police with 64 other cars.

Bill Prizer's 1969 GTO JUDGE RAM AIR III


Picture_275.jpg

GTO RAM AIR III JUDGE
Here is another great project from Bill Prizer. Bill brought us this GTO Judge as a complete basket case that needs everything. As I understand, this car is 1 of only 8 white GTO Judges built in 1969. It is also believed that this could be the only 1969 GTO Judge Ram III with a white exterior and a red interior. This car is a complete nut and bolt frame off restoration and we are using mostly NOS parts to put in back into showroom condition.

Update: We finished the Judge and attended the GTOAA/POCI Nationals in Dayton OH. This was the first time out with the car and we scored a GOLD award in concourse judging. This was quit a feat for us as this was the first GTO we have ever done.

George M's 2009 ACR Viper


Picture_074~9.jpg

George just bought this brand new 2009 ACR Viper. The car already had a red stripe but it was lacking something. George had a pretty good idea of what he wanted. So when it came time he decided to have us make his idea become a reality. We painted the front and rear bumpers, hood, roof, deck lid and the wing. What George wanted was to give his new Viper a new look.... and I think he got just that.
