Lot #1076 - This car was designed and built by the famous Chip Foose. This car started with a brand new 1999 Plymouth Prowler, then stripped down to the bare all-aluminum chassis. This is where it all began for Chip Foose and crew. Chip Foose called on well-known engine and performance builder John Lingenfelter to build the massive LS1 Corvette engine for this one-of-a-kind build. The aluminum chassis was stretched and reworked to accommodate the LS1 and the 4L60E automatic transmission. The rear end was fitted with the C5 rear independent suspension. The body was then hand fabricated by Chip Foose himself and painted in flawless black, then Chip put his final touch of custom flames over the black paint. The wheels are one-off design by Chip Foose for the build. Dan Fink was brought in to help design and build the custom one-off '34 Ford grill to accent the front of the car. Interior done in stunning tan leather for the hand built seats and door panels. The windshield and dash are carryovers from the Prowler, as the simple modern design offers a full bank of custom gauges. This car was featured in a 5 page ad in Super Rod Magazine in April of 2002 and then featured in Chrome and Flame Magazine in 2003. From the Richard Marriott Collection.
