Gil and Janet Losi's 1956 Plymouth's tailfins featuring chrome by Advanced Plating

Plymouth Perfection

Project Date of completion: Winter 2015
Project Client: Gil and Janet Losi. Steve Cook Creations

Many people tend to forget that there were auto manufacturers other than Ford and Chevy during the 1950’s.  Gil Losi is someone who knew that all too well.  When he decided to team up with the crew at Steve Cook Creations to build another cool show car, he opted to select a 1956 Plymouth convertible like he had dreamed of for so many years.  Losi had one thought in mind during the whole build, “I want to show everyone that there were other cool cars in 1956.”  A car of this caliber was in need of the world’s finest chrome, so Losi and Cook sent all of the original potmetal, modified bumpers, stainless steel trim, and newly machined aluminum parts to Advanced Plating for restoration and chrome plating.  As you can see from this close up of the car, this is one machine that you will make you think about Plymouth in a whole new way.
