Chip Foose is known for plenty masterpieces in the automotive design world, infusing modern touches with classic lines and heritage. But, this time, he’s doing something a little different.
According to Foose Design, Foose himself has taken a stillborn design sketch of a 1935 Cadillac and plans to bring it to life. The Cadillac was supposed to be a custom vehicle, commissioned by car dealer Wes Rydell and his wife Vivian.
The plan was for the 1935 Cadillac to become shorter, wider and feature a removable hardtop. We’d assume the Great Depression had something to do with the project never surpassing a sketch.
Foose has taken a 1939 Cadillac Series 60 sedan to remake the initial design, but of course with a few Foose touches. The design is expected to be ready by the end of the summer.
