Some would say there was no way forward after seeing the body falling off the chassis on this rare Dodge Route Van. This soon to be restored van running all modern engine (302) suspension and brakes will be a great tow vehicle.
Keep your eye out, on those circuit tracks, as it’ll be pulling the customers race vehicle.
Another build for the team at Burlen Fuels. We can’t wait to see this trade van finished.
This ambulance will sit on a custom fabricated VGSS chassis, using new IFS and Ford 9″ Rear. Power will come from a new 302 with AOD Transmission. Keep your eyes out for this one, further tricks to come.
Our customer wanted to retain the original patina look of their pick up truck, but wanted the reliability along with drive ability to a modern standard. We’re currently upgrading the underpinning with an IFS front suspension, upgraded rear posie springs. We’re also fitting a new 350 blueprint crate engine along with running a dual stainless steel exhaust system along with power brakes and power steering. Shes built for comfort. Did we mention a full rewire?
This Pick Up was brought in as a donor vehicle for another customer originally wanted the rear wings.
Our Austrian Client decided to save it. As you can see from the pictures we have totally rebuilt/restored. Our in house VGSS Engine shop has completely rebuilt the 350 SBC to a 383 tri power set up. There have been many hours spent on just the bodywork in saving this truck and we certainly think it was worth it.
We started this vehicle for a previous customer. The new customer who purchased the vehicle brought it back to us and we stripped all the original work that was carried out down and started again. Our new customer wanted a different style and gave us a free hand.
This 70’s style C Cab is running a 383 Tri power. The body is painted in House of Kolor paint with Melliards Modern Sign writing to really bring out that depth of paint that pops in the sun.
Keep your eyes peeled for a custom car feature soon…
This truck was in a very poor condition upon arrival into VGSS, with no engine or gearbox. We have now repaired the chassis, fitting an IFS with new 9″ Ford rear using a four bar set up. This truck is also running a Blue Print Crate Engine-SBF. Whilst the underpinning will be new, along with some creature comforts. The overall appearance of the truck will keep its aged patina look.
This cool Van is now powered by a stroker 318ci (built in house by VGSS) along with rebuilt transmission. Along with fully rebuilt/restored underpinnings. We have lowered the van by flipping the axle to get down int he weeds and sit well on those Rocket Racing Wheels. The paint job changes colour slightly depending on light and has a really good depth, thanks to the guys from OCS Paint.
This 57 Olds was once owned by Gordie Paul (Dukesville) and now owned by Kelvin who has a vast collection of cars. This will be very different from his current collection as its powered by a 558ci BBF with a pro charger to top it off. This engine once powered the 9 second Boston Brawler Drag Car (As seen below)
Originally featured in Custom Car 1997. The well known British Gasser is back into VGSS. The customer wanted to retain parts of the history of this iconic car but using his own ideas. This Gasser will now be powered by a Blown Injected Hemi built in house at VGSS.
The paint and sign writing will certainly be a big feature on this car, so keep your eyes on the drag strip as this Willys will be back where it belongs in the Gasser Circus.
We’re excited about this build. This MK4 has had a custom built IFS along with Jag IRS. Whilst the car itself will sit on E Type chrome knock offs. The car will sit a lot lower than standard with big 14″ custom made brakes. All of this is to help stop this Jag due to Russ Carpenter built Damiler V8 all topped off with supercharger. Estimated power will be 300+.
There may be some body modifications so keep your eyes on this one.
