Holton Secret Lab Presents 1954 Kaiser Manhattan www.holtonsecretlab.com
Frame off rotisserie restorationand build on this 1954 Kaiser Manhattan.
Restored to stock. We started with two Kaisers, one was for a donor car for
parts if needed and the donor car turned out to be the car as the first
Kaiser was beyond help as under the paint we found major rust and terrible
body work that hide it well until we stripped it. The donor car was in good
shape and it is amazing today as it shows the way it did in 1954! Very rare
car and fun to restore. We love the artistic design of this vehicle with
all the angles and chrome details....truly a masterpiece!

raced it in 1979, so this one's for him......:o)"

At SEMA 2012 in Las Vegas, we had the opportunity to interview Keith
Charvonia, the builder of this amazing 1951 Kaiser. You may recognize this
car as a Hot Rod Magazine Top 10 Hot Rod of 2008 - only at that time it was
in bare metal! As if being a Top 10 Ride of the Year wasn't impressive
enough, he finished the project, complete with a Gene Winfield paint job
and Thunderbird interior.
In this video, you'll see nearly every part of the car and hear how it was
built. Keith started with just a welder and grinder at age 22 when he was
in college and a few years later created one of the best cars we saw at
SEMA. He transformed the Kaiser from a 4 door to a 2 door while chopping
and modifying the entire car.
