[h=1]Chip Foose's Ridler Award: Building Impression[/h] 101,699 views







BASF Refinish
Published on Feb 14, 2014




The first concept sketches of the Ridler winning Impression took place over dinner on a napkin! So began a 7 year odyssey that would lead to the creation of perhaps the finest vehicle to come out of Foose Design. The objective was to create the perfect styling for a mid-30's roadster. The result was a unique Foose design, a sleeker and longer version of the stock 1936 & 1937 Fords.

Impression became one of the rare winners of both America's Most Beautiful Roadster and the Detroit Autorama Ridler Award, two of the highest forms of praise for any custom automobile. After their dinner meeting, Chip refined the sketch and sculpted a 1/4 scale model of the design out of clay. Shortly thereafter, work began on the custom chassis, as the wheel base, ride height and suspension components were all established. Next, a mold was pulled from the clay model, which served as the template for the fabrication of a full-size wooden buck to shape the metal over.

As assembly and metal forming continued, the timely fabrication process of the parts and components was started. Impression was not meant to be your average show car, it contains over 4,000 individual hand built parts that were machined and fabricated. Brackets, covers, suspension pieces, trim, mirror, door handles and pedals were just some of the pieces that received the highest level of attention. In fact, only 3 OEM parts can be found on the vehicle; the engine, the transmission and the center section of the rear end. Everything else is handmade, even the tires were custom molded as blanks with a handcut custom tread pattern. More time was spent on the underside of the vehicle than on the top exterior. The 1/8" gap between panels was maintained throughout the undercarriage.

Brake lines, components and wiring were all hidden underneath. All mechanical fastners have been covered our shrouded, even the shock mounts on the A-arms have custom caps. Some of the more impressive design elements are also the most subtle. A repeating theme found throughout is the presence of soft-sided triangles. That shape can be found on the pattern of the pedals, the cross-section of the A-arms, the windshield posts, the rear exhaust, the interior accents, the wheels and the side trim, to name a few. Also, you will find the iconic Ford V8 logo not only above the grille and on the center cap of the wheels, but as an illusion created by the headlights custom lens and metalwork.

Truly a masterpiece of hot rod design and elegance, Impression still appears at various car shows across the country. It serves as a benchmark of success for all the hard work done at Foose Design. www.BASFrefinish.com

[h=1]Chip Foose's Ridler Award: Building The Grand Master[/h] 14,847 views








BASF Refinish
Published on Feb 14, 2014




Grandmaster achieved critical acclaim, winning the 2002 Ridler Memorial Award, which is presented to the best first time shown new entry at the Annual Detroit AutoRama and is considered the highest profile award a designer can earn. It was the first time Chip and Foose Design achieved this great honor. Based on a 1935 Chevrolet Master Two-Door Sedan, the body was completely retailored and hand crafted from steel. Only parts of the fenders and small portions of the roof remain from the original car.

A precise 1/8" body gap can be found between every body panel, including the underbody details. A unique two-tone paint scheme features a custom BASF Glasurit 90 Line mix of Millennium Jade over Chip Silver, separated by side chrome trim, Saffron Pearl pinstripe line and Orange Pearl accent line. Owned by Bo and Wes Rydell of North Dakota.

[h=1]Chip Foose's Ridler Award: Building Stallion[/h] 9,716 views




34 2 Share


BASF Refinish
Published on Feb 14, 2014




Stallion has a colorful history for an award winning show car. Owner Ron Whiteside and his brother actually used to drag race the vehicle at race tracks during their teenage years. Ron managed to hold on to the all steel, original 1934 Ford coupe for 5 decades until he sought out Chip Foose to build him the vehicle of his dreams. Some of the numerous body modifications include a chopped roof, a smoothed cowl, a lengthened hood and reshaped fenders. A custom chassis was fabricated and a custom 4-wheel independent suspension added. Stallion was finished in a distinctive copper orange hue of BASF paint, personally mixed by Chip. Although the vehicle began as a 1934 Ford, ultimately it was reimagined as a Mercury Monarch. The Mercury brand wasn't founded until 1939, when it was launched as an entry level luxury car brand. However, Chip formed the Stallion from the perspective of what a Mercury vehicle might have looked like should the brand have been around in '34. He wanted to honor that design process, which is why you will find subtle Mercury branding elements throughout the vehicle, such as the Mercury man emblem on the engine plate. This is why you will sometimes see the vehicle referred to as a 1934 Mercury Monarch when in fact, no such vehicle ever existed. In 2004, Stallion received the celebrated Ridler Award at Detroit Autorama, the second such win for Chip and Foose Design.

Chip Foose 1965 Impala 'Impostor' Takes 2015 Ridler Award

BASF Refinish
Published on Mar 10, 2015

The 63rd Annual Detroit Autorama selected this 1965 Impala, named the 'Impostor' as the 2015 Ridler Winner. This marks the fourth Ridler for Chip Foose and the team at Foose Design.

For this creation, Chip purchased a brand now C5 Corvette from the dealership and drove it just 3 blocks before completely disassembling the car. Next he took a stock 1965 Impala and begun modifying the body by removing a total of 14 inches in length!. From there, the goal was to reinstall the complete stock drivetrain and features of the Corvette into the modified Impala body.

Chip made it all happen, right down to the OnStar system. The vehicle is finished in BASF Glasurit 90-Line 'Impostor Pearl'.

[h=1]Chip Foose Designed 1939 Cadillac Coupe named Madam X[/h] 11,804 views

Published on Jun 12, 2017




Chip Foose's Madam X was inspired by a concept sketch from 1935 created by GM designer Art Ross that was originally commissioned for production. However, plans to produce the car fell through - until now.

To closely mimic the vehicle's original design, Foose's creation has been built from a 1939 Cadillac Four Door 60 Special but in line with the Art Ross sketch. It has been totally re-bodied as a two-door coupe making it shorter and lower than ever before. While much of the design of Madam X remains true to the original, Chip Foose added some of his own unique styling touches.
