Foose does not destroy vehicles -- The owners give permission for major alterations.
THE '56 CHEVY NOTED ABOVE WAS NOT COMPLETED IN A MANNER THAT THE OWNER DIDN'T WANT. IT WAS NEGOTIATED - NOT IMPOSED! THE OWNER DID IN FACT SELL THE CAR - LONG AFTER IT WAS RETURNED TO HIM AND WITH THE BLESSING OF FOOSE. Jesus H. KERIST FOLKS - FOOSE DOES NOT DESTROY VEHICLES - YES HE MAKES CHANGES THAT MIGHT NOT BE EXACTLY AS THE OWNER WOULD HAVE DONE. WHY SO??? BECAUSE THE OWNER DID NOT HAVE THE CAPABILITY NOR RESOURCES. ALL THESE HORROR STORIES AND CREATED OUT OF JEALOUSY! JEALOUS PEOPLE CAN ALWAYS FINE ISSUE WITH ANY GIVEN PROJECT! THE KIDS TODAY TELL THESE PEOPLE TO "STFU"! IT IS APPLICABLE IN SPADES!
THE REVIEW ABOVE STATING THE TOP WAS REMOVED AGAINST THE OWNERS WISHES IS FALSE! AGAIN ---- MAJOR ALTERATIONS ARE DONE WITH THE OWNERS PERMISSION! FOOSE IS NO FOOL .... QUIT PAINTING THE PICTURE DEPICTING HIM AS ONE! YOUR JEALOUSY IS ALL TO EASY TO DETECT!
THE DOCUMENTATION SUBMITTED WHEN VEHICLE WAS PUT UP FOR AUCTION:
This one-of-a-kind 1956 Bel Air was featured on Season One, Episode 106 of the popular TV show Overhaulin' with Chip Foose. Arguably one of the most significant projects ever completed on the show, this classic Chevy roadster was designed and overhauled by Chip Foose in collaboration with 33 top builders at famed automotive academy Wyotech.
These pros turned this original 4-door sedan into a 2- door speedster. The team leaders of this build are a "who's who" list including Troy Trepanier of Rad Rides by Troy, Levi Green who is an ace fabricator, and Bryan Fuller of Fuller Hot Rods. In the published book, "The Cars of Overhaulin'" this car appears on Page 7 and it is the first car cited by Chip himself as his favorite and it is later referred to in the book as the "A-Team's finest hour."
The over-the-top collaboration of the famed builders and the aggressive transformation of the car to a 2-door speedster are what make the final result so special. This car is an absolute show-stopper and it marks a very rare opportunity to own a vehicle that will never be duplicated.
