It has been our clients labor of love for the past 27 years and with heavy hesitation, he has decided to put it up for sale, as it is time for someone else to enjoy it as he has. In 1990, he purchased a stock 1978 Dodge Magnum and as the car sits today, the only thing that remains original is the glovebox door and the VIN. It has been on display at top events and been given many awards, the most recent being the first and only automobile to be entered into the Grand Rapids ARTPRIZE event, as a work of art. It was on display at the 2017 Detroit Autorama (see photos) and most importantly, given the prestigious Gene Winfield SELECT 6 Award at the Syracuse Nationals (8,500 car show). Be sure to watch Genes video interview posted below. It was also featured in October 2017 on the popular TV car show Dream Ridez. This is a special car that has close to $300,000 total invested, as no expense was spared or shortcut was made in the build process. All work done by professionals, such as Classic Coachworks, who we know personally and sing praises of their attention to detail. Below is a list of all the modifications, inside and out. The body is all steel and the interior is all custom finished to the highest quality. If you have any further questions, please dont hesitate to contact us.
