Body Work/Trim

Created by Muscle Rod Shop, San Antonio TX, specializing in wide-body muscle rods.Frame was channeled front and rear to get that lowered stance. Body was widened 2.5" each side, starting at the front doors, finishing at the tail.Wheel arches were raised 2" and flared at all four corners.Rockers were lowered and continued to rear valance.Bumpers were modified, yet retain the stock look.

The engine bay was hand-fabricated from inner fenders to smoothed firewall.Cowl was also smoothed for a clean look.One-off custom hood with 2" raise in the middle and 3 heat extractors on both sides.

Body work was smoothed out, then painted custom mix "Reflex Blue" by House of Kolors.
