2016 Stitch of Excellence Winner
Owner: Wes and Vivian Rydell
Stitch: Adam Banks at Rad Rides
Adam Banks at Rad Rides covered them in elaborately stitched leather. The crosshatch design is carried over to the door panels, along with a burlwood panel that stretches across the dash. The upper dash contains Mazda Miata vents for the Vintage Air A/C system, and a 1949 Cadillac instrument cluster with modern workings from Classic Instruments. The lower center panel houses the Kenwood head unit providing access to HD and satellite radio, a GPS system, and a backup camera. The steering wheel was created at Rad Rides except for the stock 1956 Olds horn ring. German square-weave carpeting covers the floor of the interior and the fully finished trunk.
