World’s best custom-car tagged at 1.5 million took six years in the making!
What you see in the picture above is a custom car build by 39-year JF Launier from British Colombia in Canada that won him the award for America’s best modified car at the Detroit Autorama expo. And you won’t believe its initial condition when Launier bought it for £250. A rusted 1964 Buick Riviera that had no doors or seats. After putting in 22,000 hours over a period of six years, the man got it into top condition by spending a whooping £191,000 on this project. He had to remortgage his parental house to complete the task which is a huge risk, but Launier admits it was worth it all!
JF Launier had to put his blood and sweat for six years into making this custom-build muscle car
The mean machine is fitted with a 6.2-litre twin-turbocharged V8 Chevrolet engine and can reach top speed of 155 mph. The wheels are all-chrome and the interiors feature chocolate brown leather to give it a 60’s look. It has modifications that make it a capable drag-racer, drifter and pimp ride that you always wanted.
Everything about this muscle car is awesome. The paint-job, looks and interiors tailor-made for a bond movie. And I believe that Ken Block who drove the custom-made Hoonicorn RTR for Gymkhana 7 would love to get his hands on this beauty.
The mechanic who owns JF Kustoms shop in Osoyoos believes he has put so much effort into the making of this muscle ride that he can demand a hefty price tag of 1.5 million from it.
