Saleen Automotive Shows Off Its New Automotive Shop
July 18th, 2017
Saleen Automotive’s assembly shop has been completely redesigned and re-furnished with Danmar Equipment lifts, compressors, electrical connections and other necessary equipment needed around the Saleen shop. The upgraded equipment will help produce a quicker turnaround in new Saleen vehicles coming off the line. CEO, Steve Saleen, said Danmar Equipment was the obvious choice when it came time to upgrade.
This week on PowerNation our 4 shops have some handy takeaways you could use on your builds. Plus Katie will feature this beautifully restored 1949 Chevy pickup named ‘Ol 49 that’s been passed down from one generation to the next. Owners Jo and Adrean Shelton restored the truck in Jo’s dad’s memory. They turned to The Hot Rod Shop in Corinth, Mississippi to transform the 3/4 ton flatbed into a more modern classic truck in about 9 months. After lots of body work on the steel body, they dropped in a GM crate 350 engine that rolls on American Racing Wheels and Goodyear rubber. The bed is Oak with a Jacobean stain finished off with polished stainless steel strips and bolts. Jo chose the PPG “Carbon Black Metallic” paint color. The interior is two-tone with Charcoal and Ruby leather filled with all the creature comforts, done by M & M Hot Rod Interiors. Also this week Team Summit NHRA Funny Car racer Tim Wilkerson will have a tip on picking fuel cells. It’s one full block of tech so make sure you join us.
