1932 Desoto

1932 Desoto

Custom car shop, 360 Fabrication of Abbotsford is planning a very unusual exhibit for the Vancouver International Auto Show next week at the Vancouver Conference Centre West.

It will showcase a “restoration in progress” display of one of the country’s most anticipated restorations for 2016. The rare 1932 Desoto is being completely modified for a high-profile Calgary auto enthusiast. It will be stretched and widened and feature other extreme metal work and design.

“The extreme nature of this build is creating excitement across North America, and we’re very proud to be working on such an exciting project, especially in our 10th anniversary year,” says 360 Fabrication President Rick Francoeur.

“We’ve had the car largely secured from public viewing during this build given the intellectual property around the artistic nature of the design, but given the number of people who have expressed an interest in seeing the vehicle, the owner has agreed to a very special “under construction” viewing only at the show. This car will travel the international show circuit once done, but to be able to unveil it in full metal, in progress is very exciting.”

The rebuilt Desoto will feature a LS9 ZR1 motor.

Other elements of the 360 10th anniversary display will include a rare, fully restored 1967 T5 Mustang.
