Star of Velocity's reality television series Overhaulin'
Chip Foose is a hot rod shop owner, automotive designer and fabricator, and star of the reality TV series Overhaulin’ on Velocity. Foose gained more exposure in 2003 as a result of a TLC documentary on his design and creation of a modified 2002 Ford Thunderbird called the Speedbird. In 2004, the TLC program Overhaulin’ began to air with Foose as the star of show. At the 2005 Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) show, a unique 1969 Foose Designed Camaro Convertible was displayed, to be produced in a 300 car run by Unique Performance of Dallas Texas. Press releases following this period announced UP would also be handling the marketing of Foose’s other custom car lines, including Hemisfear, along with the Foose 2006 Mustang Stallion. Foose also designed a paint scheme for 4 time NASCAR Sprint Cup Champion Jeff Gordon to promote Dupont’s Hot Hues paint line. Foose has since severed ties with DuPont and now promotes the BASF Glasurit paint line exclusively. In November 2007, Foose officially severed ties to Unique Performance following police action against UP for alleged illegal activities. In 2006, Foose launched a line of die cast replicas of many of his famous designs partnering with the makers of Johnny Lightning in the creation of JL Full Throttle. JL Full Throttle produced many of Foose’s famous, award winning designs like Grand Master and Impression. In 2002, Chip won the coveted “Ridler” Award at the 50th Anniversary Show of the Detroit Autorama with Bob and Wes Rydell’s 35 Chevy Master, otherwise known as the “Grandmaster”. The Impression subsequently won the prestigious Ridler prize. Also replicated were a number of cars from Overhaulin’. Announced at the(SEMA) show in 2006 was a pact between Foose and Ford to produce Foose designed Ford vehicles, the first of which was shown at the 2007 New York Auto Show.
Foose was retained as design consultant to provide architects with unique styling elements for the exterior and interior of the $275 million expansion of Detroit’s MotorCity Casino, anticipated to be complete by the end of 2007.
As of 2010, Foose continues to operate Foose Design and provide design consultations to the Big Three automakers. Overhaulin’ was canceled at the end of 2009, though reruns still air on Discovery Turbo. Shortly following the launch of the channel Velocity, it was announced that Overhaulin’ would return in the fourth quarter of 2012.
Foose also finds time to serve as the Vice Chairman of the Progeria Research Foundation, California Chapter. (Foose’s youngest sister died of Hutchinson-Gilford Progeria Syndrome.) Foose has also taken part in numerous children’s charities such as Childhelp and Victory Junction Gang Camp. He was also named Grand Marshal of SEMA Show N’ Shine public car show for children’s charities. Foose also helped start the Ridemakerz customizable toy cars business in 2007.
Foose and his wife live in Southern California with their two children Brock and Katie.
