Background:

This 1932 Muroc roadster, Magnatude, is actually a custom build of an old Foose design from 2001. Jerry Magnuson, owner of Magnatude, bought a fendered Muroc Roadster from Kugel Komponents when they were first available, mostly using it as a test vehicle for his successful Magnacharger supercharger program. He made a few upgrades, such as hidden headlights in the front fenders and an engine blower with built-in inner-cooler. When it came time for Jerry to finish the vehicle, he contacted Foose Design.

At Foose, the vehicle had its body smoothed and aligned. The suspension components and rear end were reshaped. Chip designed custom wheels and a two-tone butterscotch and champagne paint scheme (Butterscotch Pearl with Champagne Metallic from Foose Colors by BASF). Jim Griffin installed the Chip Foose designed interior and all new custom trim was added. Signature styling pieces including the pedals, interior door panels and gauges all featured Muroc badging.

Magnatude was named the 2010 Goodguys Street Rod d'Elegance.
