Current Projects

1959 Buick - "Jackie O"
Starting from three 1959 Buicks, "Jackie O" will be re-born with a C-4 corvette front & rear suspension, air ride, and an LS1 engine. Long, lean and understated; like her name-sake, she'll be very powerful and very elegant. Here we see Dale ("Mack the Hammer") working on the chassis!

1957 Chev Wagon - "Persephone"
This beauty is getting a new lease on life with a brand new look. We've modified the hood, shaved the handles, and smoothed out the dash. For the suspension, we added 2" dropped spindles, power disc brakes, and power steering. We have also added stainless steel exhaust and 4-speed automatic.

1959 Buick Wagon - "Land Shark"
This old girl is a rare find and will become an even more unusual ride. Buick didn't make a 2-door wagon in '59 so we will first make her unique by stretching the front doors and removing the 2 rear doors. The final touches on the design of the chassis are underway and she will go one the jig shortly. The powertrain will be a 6.6 Duramax diesel and a 6-speed Allison transmission coupled to a quick-change rear end. Stay tuned!

1933 Ford Touring Coupe
This 1933 Ford Touring Coupe is one of the nicest rides on the roads of Atlantic Canada. The owner wanted a very special highway car built for touring. He wanted a car with great heritage but with all of today’s technology and the fit and finish found in high-end European cars. The main body of the car is built from fiberglass but with a twist - the hand-laid fiberglass is set and cured in a vacuum process and the hood and hood sides are steel. We changed the silhouette of the body giving the car a European feel, but leaving its strong American heritage still showing. The roof was chopped and raked and the nose was stretched and pinched and then we tugged on its chin! Then we hand-built a custom stainless steel grill. The chassis was extensively reworked to provide the appropriate stiffening and the independent rear axle set-up that had previously been installed was removed and replaced with a Ford 8.8” set-up with disc brakes. We connected the rear axle to the chassis with an unequal 4-link suspension and installed a sway bar and coilover shocks. The front suspension was also re-worked and we installed coilovers shocks along with a sway bar. The motor is an LT1 fuel injection through a 4-speed automatic and the exhaust exits via a custom, 2 1/2" handcrafted stainless steel exhaust system. The car has been treated to custom handcrafted gauges. The interior has been completely covered in Dynamat sound deadening and we installed a double-layer steel firewall that was insulated between the layers. The car sports a beautiful tri-coat black cherry paint job and buttery Austrian leather custom designed tan interior. We are doing the final testing and tuning and she will be ready to go home very soon!

Completed Projects

'48 Pontiac
This was a nice original car that needed some TLC. We focused our energy on the drivetrain, interior and paint to bring back the original gleam. She is now a daily driver in California.

GT1 McDonald's
Fast lap record holder at Atlantic Motorsport Park. Winner of the Moosehead Grand Prix two years running. Photos by Steve Shearer.

56 Chev
Restored - original driver

427 Corvette

69 Z28 Camaro
302 4-speed; additional photos of the restoration to come soon

'59 Ford Fairlane 500
This rare classic has a retractable hard top roof and is a Fairlane Galaxy 500. The owner started the restoration work a few years ago and the project sat idle for some time after that. He has asked us to complete the final assembly and get her ready for summer fun!

'71 Charger
This project started with the fabrication and installation of floor pans. When that was completed, the owner asked us to fabricate a replacement panel for the rear quarter panel and to rebuild rear springs, add bushings, gas shocks and sway bars.

40 Ford Cabriolet - Jim's Folly
This beautiful ride was custom designed and built for a customer in Western Canada. Check out the pics of this build.

Chopper Parts Too!
Yes we build chopper parts! This Heritage Harley Davidson now has a set of Road King saddle bags - we designed and fabricated brackets to make these bags a custom fit. As well, some of the gas tanks we have designed and fabricated are currently in paint and will soon be posted on the website!

#7 Pro Stock
Fresh from paint and lettering, getting ready for the start of the season.

1950 Studebaker
This car was started by another builder who unfortunately didn't have a lot of chassis building experience so, we took over the build to address chassis and suspension shortfalls. We custom built a new Remuda Coaches chassis and lifted the already painted body onto the new chassis. We also re-wired the complete car and built window tracks to accommodate the chopped roof done by the previous builder.

1974 Barracuda - "Cerita's 'Cuda"
The best part of this business is the people we meet and the owners of this car - Chris and Cerita - are the reason we build custom cars - great people and a great project car. This car came to us in baskets - started by another builder. We had to start from scratch fixing ill-fitting panels and gaps. After we painted this car in custom-mixed DuPont color called "Cerita Blue", the car was assembled with the best products we could find - the list is long and extensive. Special attention was given to getting the 2.5" stainless steel exhaust tucked up tight and exiting though the rear valance straight. You keen-eyed MOPAR folks will notice the oversized 'Cuda badges custom cut out of aluminum with a water jet machine! On the inside we installed a/c and custom gauges with Cerita’s name silk-screened on the gauge faces.

1965 Shelby Daytona Coupe (Replica)
This beauty had come to us for resolving some fuel injection issues. They have been addressed and she is back on the road again!

1931 5-Window Milner Tribute Coupe
A cool and rare coupe – this all steel 5-window Model A was a great find for our customer who wanted to build a Milner tribute car (from American Graffiti). The 59A flathead V8 was pulled in favor of a very stout 350 coupled to a Muncie 4-speed and into an 8.8” rear axle. We chopped the top 4” and stretched the cab to flush-mount the doors. We installed a new Lucky 7 chassis with chromed straight axle.

1932 Plymouth Coupe
This is a 1932 Plymouth “Businessman's Coupe”. We really liked the lines and styling cues of this rare car. We installed a Lucky 7 chassis, a new 9" Ford rear end and the owner will becoming back soon to complete the next phase of the build - we're looking forward to having her back in the shop!
