Chip Foose's Ridler Award: Building Impression
The first concept sketches of the Ridler winning Impression took place over
dinner on a napkin! So began a 7 year odyssey that would lead to the
creation of perhaps the finest vehicle to come out of Foose Design.
The objective was to create the perfect styling for a mid-30's roadster.
The result was a unique Foose design, a sleeker and longer version of the
stock 1936 & 1937 Fords. Impression became one of the rare winners of both
America's Most Beautiful Roadster and the Detroit Autorama Ridler Award,
two of the highest forms of praise for any custom automobile.
After their dinner meeting, Chip refined the sketch and sculpted a 1/4
scale model of the design out of clay. Shortly thereafter, work began on
the custom chassis, as the wheel base, ride height and suspension
components were all established. Next, a mold was pulled from the clay
model, which served as the template for the fabrication of a full-size
wooden buck to shape the metal over. As assembly and metal forming
continued, the timely fabrication process of the parts and components was
Impression was not meant to be your average show car, it contains over
4,000 individual hand built parts that were machined and fabricated.
Brackets, covers, suspension pieces, trim, mirror, door handles and pedals
were just some of the pieces that received the highest level of attention.
In fact, only 3 OEM parts can be found on the vehicle; the engine, the
transmission and the center section of the rear end. Everything else is
handmade, even the tires were custom molded as blanks with a handcut custom
More time was spent on the underside of the vehicle than on the top
exterior. The 1/8" gap between panels was maintained throughout the
undercarriage. Brake lines, components and wiring were all hidden
underneath. All mechanical fastners have been covered our shrouded, even
the shock mounts on the A-arms have custom caps.
Some of the more impressive design elements are also the most subtle. A
repeating theme found throughout is the presence of soft-sided triangles.
That shape can be found on the pattern of the pedals, the cross-section of
the A-arms, the windshield posts, the rear Exhaust, the interior accents, the wheels and
the side trim, to name a few. Also, you will find the iconic Ford V8 logo
not only above the grille and on the center cap of the wheels, but as an
illusion created by the headlights custom lens and metalwork.
Truly a masterpiece of hot rod design and elegance, Impression still
appears at various car shows across the country. It serves as a benchmark
of success for all the hard work done at Foose Design.
