When asked why the 1971 Chevy Caprice was chosen as the canvas for our latest project, host Tommy Boshers offered a simple response: ‘Just because.’ But, when he dives deeper, it becomes evident that for many, the Caprice holds nostalgic ties, evoking memories of family road trips, shopping with mom or dad, cruising around town on Friday nights after school, or, in Tommy’s case, the adrenaline-fueled days of demolition derbies.

When we brought in the 1971 Chevy Caprice, it was clear that this project wouldn’t be an easy one. Every aspect, from the trim to the body, exterior to the underside, had to be worked on. Plus, we faced a special challenge with this car – some parts, like the trim, were one-of-a-kind with no after-market option. Preserving those unique details was key to keeping the car’s original charm alive.

In restoring this beauty, we went all out on the details.  We were able to source a rare egg crate grille, Continental Tires Extreme Contact DWS Plus
245/40ZR20 and 285/35ZR22, and US Mags Desperado Wheels 20×8.5 and 22×10.5.  The Engine, built by Engine Power is a 840 HP Whipple Super Charged LS3 with an American Powertrain Magnum 6 speed transmission.  We finished it with chrome plating by advanced plating and painted it an organic Candy Green from House of Kolor.  Inside, the transformation continued with a fully customized interior, crafted to seamlessly blend comfort and style.

When Fat Stack hits the road, it commands attention.  It’s not just a car; it’s a masterpiece that captures the attention of everyone in its presence.  Our goal with this project was to create something powerful and attention grabbing.  Judging by the turned heads on the street, we can proudly say we nailed it with this build.
