This 1946 Ford Coupe (Tudor) came to the V8 Speed & Resto Shop for a repaint, as well as some rust repair and other fixes.    Plans call for an exterior paint stripping, sheet metal repair, bodywork, priming, and shooting a new coat of shiney metallic charcoal paint.   It's going to be a sharp ride in 1966 Mercury Coventry Gray!

817 S. MAIN STREET - RED BUD, IL 62278

This 1979 Pontiac Trans Am was originally equipped with a 403 cubic inch Oldsmobile V8, and although it was pretty hot for the time, it just isn't enough for the owner today.    The car came to the V8 Speed & Resto Shop for some high-performace upgrades including a GM LS3 485 HP V8 engine fed by a Holley EFI system, and it will handle better thanks to a Ridetech Street Grip suspension system with YearOne wheels.   Wilwood brakes will haul it down in short order.  Before all the fun, we had to fix some rusty floors, which was a good time to fabricate a custom firewall for the car as well.   Follow along with all the progress here!
