Renaissance is a big word,
but it has a powerful meaning. It is the vigorous advancement or rebirth of classical influence in the arts and sciences. That said, check out the images of this car and you will see the meaning in every curve and nuance of this magnificent automobile.
Buddy Jordan from Spring Branch, Texas, came to Steve Frisbie at Steve’s Auto Restorations (SAR), of Portland, Oregon, and said “I want to go to Detroit and debut a car that I want you to build for me.” The gauntlet was thrown and Frisbie was the guy to take up the challenge.
Frisbie put his head together with designer Chis Ito and between them they came up with the basic concept using inspiration from a ’33 Ford roadster to determine what the roadster would look like. In-house designer David Brost was responsible for the art direction of the machine shops and the concepts of the chassis, engine compartment, and interior. These complex design relationships between owner Buddy Jordan, the SAR staff, and the machine shops became the marriage of old world panel beaters with state-of-the-art CNC technology using mathematical design data. Everything created for the car is one-off.
