This 1965 Thunderbird is the product of many long and hard hours of work while working with Chip Foose on the TV series 'Overhaulin'.

I did a complete restoration on this 65 convertible for a local customer. This car won several local car show awards. Painted an unusual rose color as requested by the customer.

I did a complete and full restoration on this 63 convertible. Restored for the original owner to factory specifications with some minor changes such as a cloth top and 6 disk CD player.
