At Apex Upholstery, our expertise isn’t confined to just homes and commercial spaces; we also have a passion for bringing classic vehicles back to their former glory. A testament to this is our work on the 1932 Ford Model 18 V8 Deluxe Roadster, a project that was as much about precision as it was about preserving history.
A Vintage Vision in Olive Green
For this vintage gem, our client desired an interior that complemented its rich history while adding a touch of modern luxury. The centerpiece of our design was the distressed olive green leather upholstery. This choice wasn’t just about aesthetics; it was about paying homage to the era of the car while infusing a bit of contemporary flair. The leather’s vintage look and feel perfectly matched the Roadster’s classic aura.
Custom Details that Speak Volumes
No stone was left unturned in customizing this beauty. The fluted bench seating and the rumble seat were crafted with meticulous attention, ensuring that each ride was as comfortable as it was stylish. Our team employed custom foam shaping techniques to achieve an ergonomic design that aligns with the car’s original character.
The door panels and map pockets were no exception. These elements were carefully designed to complement the overall theme, ensuring that every aspect of the car’s interior resonated with the timeless elegance of the 1930s.
For this project, Apex Upholstery didn’t just restore a car; we breathed new life into a piece of automotive history. Every stitch, every choice of material, and every design decision was taken with respect for the past and a vision for the future. The result was a 1932 Ford Model 18 V8 Deluxe Roadster that stood as a proud testament to the era it originated from, yet boasted a level of comfort and style that is thoroughly modern. This is what Apex Upholstery is all about: blending history with the present to create something truly unique.
