Overall, Foose has one main specialty and it’s the modern roadster. If you look back through history at every vehicle Foose has designed, the majority of them are roadsters. He has a passion for building fun, beautiful hot rods. The Impression is one of his oldest hot rod models and hit the scene in 2005. Naturally, there’s a big emphasis on sheet metal and custom fabrication. The paint job is about as bland as you can get but that’s okay because Foose designed it that way. Foose said that he originally came up with the design for the Impression on a napkin (via Chip Foose).
There are over 4,000 handcrafted parts used in the car, including a beautiful set of original Foose wheels. The front end and headlights are very reminiscent of a Ford Coupe because these are the types of hot rods that Foose specializes in. When it comes to rare hot rods combined with styling, the Impression is by far one of the most beautiful. Anything that Foose designs stand out from the crowd. The Impression has been leaving a lasting impression on enthusiasts for almost two decades now.
