Yes I hated that as well but are you saying that you wouldn't want that HEMI to put under the hood of a project?

I know people are going to look at me wierd here, but no, I would take the 440 worked over instead of that 5.7 anyday of the week, and that includes the 6.1 as well.

You better look again Khyron, thats no 5.7 under the hood of that Foose-mobile.

WTF is a Shaker doing on a 1st gen Charger  brickwall The interior doesn't look bad but the original gauges restored would have been much cooler.  icon_smile_cool

Those oversized rally wheels look Hideous !  coocoo puke

On the plus side the bodywork and paint are gorgous.  2thumbs Too bad about the original motor being trashed. A nice 500in stroker would eat that Hemi for breakfast.  icon_smile_big

I think the car looks pretty good.  Just not $75K good.  I also dont know / dont care if something looks original as long as it looks good and functions properly.

BTW, I got 'em on my project '69 I'm building. IMO, they are GORGEOUS wheels, especially up close in person. The car is even more assembled now, they look great on a 2nd gen, IMO. They are much, MUCH better than those offered by Billet Specialties.

I think the guages, front seats, and steering wheel all look way out of place too. The shaker I thought was cool at first, but then I realized they didn't do a real shaker with the baseplate hooked to the carb. If that was the case I wouldn't be able to see plug wires through it.

heres one that hates the engine... I remember this build, it's the reason I stopped watching the show. It was an original 440 car, when they pulled the engine the chain broke and the engine smashed to the ground.... thats right, the ORIGINAL MOTOR was just smashed and thrown away. It pissed me off. so I stopped watching.

I've seen them do this to many cars, but this one just hit home for some reason.

Not an original 440 car though, original 383 2bbl, note the 5th digit "G".

Wow, if I was Chip Foose, I'd be kind of ticked. You do something nice for a guy and they turn around and sell it to make a profit. I could tell the kid wasn't really into that car. He looked like he'd prefer a ricer instead. I loved the part where the engine broke the chain. Most the owners on that show love their cars and would never sell them in a million years because of the emotional attachment. I think what Chip does is super nice. I see the look in his eyes when they first see their cars and it seems he does it out of the kindness of his heart. He realizes it's more than a car to them and it represents an emotional experience or family member/friendship relationship. He uses his skills to touch others lives. What a stud. I keep waiting for him to "steal" my 68 Charger but much to my disappointment, I just went out to the garage and it's still there!  Cry

1. agree with most on the wheels just don't look right on a !st gen.
2. and what is with shaving the door handles ? Just never have liked that look myself.  shruggy

I agree w/your comment.
Nobody on line here could build that car for what has been put into it at the asking price.
I see so many smashing it and other cars tweaked, modified other than stock, gees, being original is so out dated, ha-ha.

I'd give it all kinds of respect and praise the great Foose if I thought it looked like something worth respecting.  Just because he's a talented body and paint man doesn't mean that everything he touches becomes a great work of art.  It doesn't even mean it's tasteful or improved and even though some may see it that way, some obviously don't.

Replay of this episode was on the other day......  eek

As stated by others, the things that bugged me were:

A) You could tell that that goofy kid didn't give two craps about the Charger and that car was gonna get sold off. He didn't even know who Foose or Overhaulin' was.

B) The '67 was nice car to start with..not a basket case.  Replacing that beautiful original interior with that Frankenstein they put in was just blasphemous.

C) The whole concept of the show was completely void in this episode....you know the drill....nice, deserving motorhead gets his pride and joy the facelift that he couldn't afford or have time to get done.....tears everywhere at the end.  This show was just awkward to watch.

If that beautiful car was my grandma's/dad's and now mine....you'd have to pry it from my cold, dead fingers.  And they wouldn't be able to air the episode if it was 'stolen' and Foosified...

I build a stout 360 for my charger, and it just.... I don't know, just didn't work in the car... it didn't "feel" right... so now... 440 baby Cheesy


Well that's why America is great: to each their own.

As for deriding the owners for selling these cars, no one here can genuinely stand and point their finger in criticism, because if the right person with the right amount of cash came along, or life circumstances dictated a need, I know that some here wouldn't think twice about selling.  Hell, most of you have said as much over the years.  Again, to each their own...
