We install what we sell on a daily basis, and we ship our custom-built chassis packages to classic car enthusiasts across the United States. Our goal is to help you drive the classic car you love, and enjoy every second of the ride.

They took my money and never worked on my car for 3 years!!!

At MetalWorks, we sometimes feel like an orphanage for car builds due to the number of unfinished projects that we have taken in over the years. Each of these cars has come with a horror story of how the shop restoring the car was taking payment, but not actually working on the vehicle, or working […]

One family owned1969 Mach 1 Mustang gets a sympathetic restoration.

It’s always cool to hear about families that purchased a “classic car” when it was new, and still have it. Owning any car that was sitting new at a dealership in the 1960’s is something special, but when it’s a stand out car like a 1969 Mach 1 Mustang…it’s really amazing! Our customer brought us […]

Getting a truck to handle more like a car has been a goal of many since trucks became collectable. So now […]

ProTouring 1954 Chevy Truck

Trucks have never been more popular in the classic car world than they are presently.

Typically 2WD trucks have gone down, and I mean really down with their stance. Many builders are not content with […]

1954 Chevy Belair ProTouring

  Our ProTouring 1954 Chevy Belair build arrived at the shop as just a shell. The 54 was acid dipped, then, metal worked and mocked up on its new Art Morrison “GT Sport” chassis. The supercharged LSA engine mocked up in the AME chassis with front sheet metal in place. Body out of metal fab […]
