69 Fastback Coyote Build

We have been hammering away on this build for the last year and wanted to share our progress as we finish it up for the Goodguys North Carolina Nationals.

We, Gt Graphics and Customs, are a full restoration shop out in Franklin, North Carolina. We do restorations/custom builds from mild to wild and everything in between. We have over 1,800 hours in this one!

Here are some pics of right before it arrived








The customer thought the car was pretty solid, but after we dug into it it had some pretty extensive rust and body damage.
