Goodguys founder and Chairman Gary Meadors is workin’ on a new car with the help of some old friends. Long a fan of big 40s era classics, the new project is a 1948 Chrysler Town and Country convertible – a graceful beauty with long, low symmetrical lines.
Working off a sketch by Thom Taylor, Meadors has appointed Bob Bauder of Crestline, California as captain of the build team. The completely new wood installation is courtesy of Cincinnati Woodworks. The gang at Wood N Carr will perform the intricate wood finish work. The color will be a deep maroon with warm, rich wood tones.
Under the long smooth hood will sit a 2006 Dodge Viper “Gen 3” SRT 10 with an automatic trans. An Art Morrison chassis with coilover’s and 4 wheel disc brakes will get the big Woodie riding in ultra cool, ultra low fashion. The bright work will be handled by Sherm’s plating. Seventeen inch Chrysler wires & whitewall’s finish off the look. In sticking to the Meadors signature, the goal is to have an extremely low stock appearing classic Chrysler for comfortable long distance cruisin’ and profilin’.
