1966 Chevrolet Corvair Monza 110

The 1966 Chevy Corvair we are building actually belongs to owner Greg Alonzo.  So It will become the main poster child of Speakeasy.  We will be entering it in the 2018 Chicago World of Wheels and are really excited to be working toward having it at the show.  It will have shaved door handles, custom paint and interior and will be sitting on an air ride suspension.  We will be posting videos, pictures and regular updates so stay tuned.

1963 Ford F100 Pick Up Truck

The '63 F-100 pick up is being built by a couple of friends of mine, designer Mike Herbert and Edgar Lara, they will be offering the finished product for sale when complete.  Or you can contact us about purchasing now and having a say in color and final details.  Speakeasy Customs will be doing all the metal work as well as some of the final assembly.  There is a lot of metal that needs to be replaced on it so there will be a lot of fabricating and welding.

 Before we started

1971 Triumph TR6

The '71 Triumph is also a personal project of owner Greg Alonzo.  It was the first project that Greg bought when he was with the Automotive Mentoring Group.  The plans have changed for the TR6 a few times and it is now on hold till the 1966 Corvair is complete, but it is next on the schedule!  over the last couple of years however it has led to some great experiences like being on the cover of Moss Motoring, and traveling to New York to spend a week at Ratco building a new frame for it.  Greg has also been gathering parts over the last coupe of year so when it is time to start working on it we will be able to move quickly with it.

2000 Nissan Pathfinder

Our first client was a 2000 Nissan Pathfinder that was a very low millage car with less than 80,000 miles on the odometer.  The second owner of the car decided to invest a little money into it and fix all the rust by having us fabricate new metal for the quarter panels, paint and install new fenders and then use Rhino Liner on the moldings, bumpers and rims.  We also put in new headlights as well.

We worked on a 1991 Toyota Land Cruiser over the summer and yes it is indeed a classic.  At 26 years old it qualifies for antique license plates!  That being said, just like any classic car it has extensive rust damage to the drivers side rear quarter panel and rocker panel, it was all cut out and new metal pieces were fabricated and welded in, after a little body work and paint, she looked just like a brand new truck!
