Although the original drawings for this completely redesigned 1978 Dodge Magnum were drawn 27 years ago they have proved to be timeless. A modern RETRO CONCEPT. Just recently completed it was chosen to be featured in the Kalvalcade of Kustoms display at the 2017 Detroit Auto Rama at Cobo Hall. This summer it received one of the top awards in the country from the legendary California customizer Gene Winfield "Select Six" award at the Syracuse NY Nationals. see( youtube.com/watch?v=sglxZM9F-8.) This fall it will be shown on Direct TVs DREAM RIDEZ program. At first glance the common expression is "what is that". Very few can guess the make and model of this car. Although it was designed 27 years ago it is a true modern RETRO CONCEPT inside and out. These Magnums were not a common car to begin with so there is nothing else in the custom world that comes even close to this concept. At 45" tall it is a real LOW RIDER. The body is completely formed, consisting of only four pieces including the 2 doors and the hood. The trunk is incorporated into the main body. The roof has been chopped 5" and extended 6" into the trunk area. All ground effects, spoiler and modification are steel. All lighting in and out is LED. Air suspension to allow driving down the road. The interior features real Tiger wood , both front seats slide out and turn 180 degrees so you can watch the drop down TV between the rear seats. Over 5000 hours of design, metal sculpturing, fabricating and hand finishing to create this unique art form. Finished in a flawless attention grabbing Tahitian Green Pearl finish. View at the Grand Rapids Public Museum.
