• Competitors –pricing ($30K for an Experi-Metal body but under $15K for an RDS)
• Keep cost low to introduce as many new bodies as possible to improve reputation for quality, generate excitement among retailers
• Project cars: Chop Cut Rebuild 56, Street Rodder 40 and 55
• Advantage of US-built (stigma, cost, employ US workers, trickle-down to local economy)
• RDS has constructed (102) 55-57 bodies, (10) 1940 Ford coupe bodies and (1) 1969 Camaro coupe body to date

Why a new body?
• Scarcity of originals of certain body styles
• Allows shop or customer to build completely new classic car
