From Race to Show and Back Again
1969 Chevrolet C-10
Long Beach, CA
Phillips & Co. Hot Rods
After spending years making other’s automotive dreams come true as the project manager for the television show Overhaulin’ Rob Phillips looked to make his own dream come true and opened up his own shop in Long Beach, California, Phillips & Co. Hot Rods. He knew he would need a flagship vehicle to showcase his shop’s services and his talents. Thankfully, he didn’t have to look very far; he had been working on redoing his 1969 Chevrolet C-10 on the side throughout the Overhaulin’ builds. The truck formerly found its home on the race track and at burnout exhibitions. It was fun, but needless to say it was all go and not a lot of show. The time for an update was now and the changes came quickly with the total rebuild taking less than a year to accomplish. That year was plenty of time for Rob’s shop to work its magic, after all he was used to putting out custom vehicles in 7 days!
