Chip Foose will unveil his latest automotive project, the 1939 Cadillac custom known as “Madam X,” at SEMA on Nov. 1 at 12:30 p.m.. The event will feature an autograph session and a short presentation from Foose.
Fabrication began with a 1939 Cadillac four-door 60 Special and was inspired by an original 1935 concept sketch by GM designer, Art Ross. Madam X is now re-bodied as a two-door coupe that has been lowered, shortened and customized.
The Madam X features a Corvette Gen V LT-1 motor, an 8-speed 8L90 automatic transmission from a Cadillac Escalade coupled to a Camaro Z01 third member, C6 Corvette suspension front and rear, and Pirelli tires. In addition, the body features all-new chrome trim, a custom leather interior, one-off cloth Carson top, custom-mixed BASF paint, painted blonde wood dash, and bespoke MHT billet aluminum wheels styled to resemble classic Cadillac hubcaps.
