Foose Designs P-32 Roadster

[zfp_photo id=’h2d0033b’]

Chip started out with a ’32 Ford Roadster and a body from Brookville Roadster that he massaged and customized to mimic a WWII fighter plane. Powered by a Continue reading

Foose Designs HEMISFEAR

In 1990 when Chip Foose was attending Art Center and studying Automotive Product Design he designed and hand built a 1/5th scale this beautiful ride as part of his (Chrysler Sponsored) graduation project. I do find it interesting (as do many others) that just 6 years later a strikingly similar vehicle emerged from Plymouth. While the prowler was horribly underpowered when first released in 1997, the HEMISFEAR has a 392 HEMI with over 500 HP. In partnership with Metalcrafters, this vehicle is planned to be produced in very low numbers (50 total) for a cool $300k. A bit more than a Prowler but probably a better investment overall (although I do like the Prowler).
