1960 Buick Invicta Convertible.

We did a complete frame off on this super nice Buick.  PW, P-bucket seat, P-door locks, head light dimmer, etc.  We tastefully customized it with a built 401 Nailhead with dual fours, Full Air Suspension, completely hidden stereo system, and 20" staggered Foose wheels.  Custom Wildcat bucket seat interior with center console, floor shifter and factory Buick tach.  Riviera tilt steering column with ribbed covers.  Riviera rear seat with flip-up arm rest.  Custom trunk panels to hide the air suspension, and stereo components.

1960 Cadillac Convertible.

We found this Caddy in the backyard of a north Phoenix house where it had been sitting for 30 years.  We took the body off the frame and blasted, painted, and powder coated all chassis components.  It received all new bushing and ball joints and new steering components.  The factory hardware was nice and it was sent out for cad and zinc plating.  We added an aftermarket air suspension using billet valve manifolds.  The body was blasted and since it was an Arizona car very little rust repair was needed.  We changed the color to black and did a full black and cream leather interior.

We added almost every factory option that did not come on the Cadillac originally, so when it was completed the car had; PW, PDL, P-vent windows, P-seat, P-trunk, AC, cruise control, auto headlight dimmer, tri-power, etc.

1957 DeSoto Adventurer Convertible.

'57 Adventurers are rare and gorgeous cars.  This was a beautiful car when it came to our shop but had a number of bugs that needed to be worked out.  We ended up installing new wiring front to rear, re-chroming some of the potmetal, re-doing some of the interior, brakes, gauge cluster and radio restoration, and much more.  This car now performs as good as it looks.

1959 Dodge Custom Royal Lancer D-500 Convertible.

This 1959 Dodge Custom Royal Lancer convertible went through a total frame off restoration at our shop in the late -80’s.  The car was relatively rough and it required a lot of welding and repair before we sprayed it coral and pink.  We rebuilt the original 383 engine, transmission, front end, brakes, rear end, new correct interior, new rubber, etc, etc.

A local collector bought the Dodge and he asked us to add every option we could get for the car so in the end it had; Power Steering, Power Brakes, Power Windows, Swivel seat with 6 way Power, a Super D500 package (dual 4 bbl carburetors), front sway bar, Mirror Matic rear view mirror, Speed warning, Headlight dimmer, Dual exterior mirrors and the left being remote control, Tinted glass, All optional chrome, hood ornament, quarter panel chrome, etc, Padded dash, Chrysler wire wheels and wide white wall tires.
