To complete the fabrication on the body, he worked along with the team from Dale's Custom Auto in Hackettstown, New Jersey. Starting with the front end, they added a set of '55 Chevy headlights and extended eyebrows, giving the car yet another subtle update, while reworking the original hood by rounding the sides and peaking it. Continuing down the car, they followed by shaving it clean, adding custom frenched dual antennas, and frenched stock rear taillights.
To add the final spice, custom bumpers and a dramatic grille were designed and installed before its long-anticipated trip to the spray booth. A coating of custom-blended House of Kolor purple pearl was laid down and topped by ghost flames by the team at Dale's. Heading for home plate, Lou knew the car needed a tricked out interior to match the rest of its personality, so he looked to Distinctive Interiors in Toms River to stitch up a wicked white pleated vinyl business office featuring cut-down late-model Mustang buckets complimented by a custom-fabbed console filled with plenty of hot tunes thanks to Pioneer. With plenty of plush purple carpet and a vintage white three-spoke steering wheel, the car finally achieved the brilliance it was waiting for. A custom car builder on the East Coast scene for over 50 years, it's no wonder his friends refer to him as "King Louie"! All we know is there's no way he'll ever let this one slip away again.
