Briefly about the project

We took an already amazing 1949 Chevy and made it better! Bill came to us with the decision to convert his vehicle to a manual transmission. With all the custom work done on this resto modded Chevy this conversion really completed the package. With its LS7 engine, upgraded suspension and brakes, this vehicle is more than just a show car it is a performer on the road!
