Speedhunters Takes a Shop Tour of Fat57 Customs

Recently our pals over at Speedhunters had the chance to visit Fat57 Customs in Sydnesy, Australia, and from the pictures we’ll have to admit that we’re just a little bit jealous. Fat57 is made up of Mark Jones and his sons Beauman and Harley, and they have one goal in life; to build wild custom cars of every flavor, and to do so in the real spirit of home grown do-it-yourself hot rodding. Mark Jones has built over 100 cars throughout his career and his boys have the same passion.

Together the trio has built hot rods, lead sleds, and even drift cars! Their most famous car may be the orange FAT57 Chevy that was on display for  Carroll Shelby’s 80th birthday, which was auctioned off at Barrett-Jackson following the party.

Their transporter truck is a great example of their style and workmanship as it’s a slammed 1954 Chevy COE with a fully custom chassis and a unique LPG big block under the hood.  In the back is room for the show cars, three beds, and a killer stereo, making this car transporter the coolest and mot unique around. Other cars in the shop include the shop truck, a ’56 Chevy, and a few billion rat rod and hot rod projects awaiting their turn.
