The list of Foose vehicles to be showcased in the Petersen Automotive Museum so far is as follows: • Green Hemisfear Part supercar, part custom and part hot rod,
- Hemisfear is perhaps the most renowned Foose vehicle. It’s a culmination of a 16 year personal dream for Chip, this unique design became the inspiration for the Plymouth Prowler.
- Imposter This 1965 Chevy Impala is not what it appears – underneath the heavily modified skin sits a C6 Corvette. This is a state-of-the-art engineering and performance platform, built for Don and Elma Voth.
- ‘56 Foose F-100 In 2005, as part of the show Overhaulin', which featured Chip as co-host and lead designer, the truck was "stolen" from the Foose Design lot. Unbeknownst to Chip, his dad Sam led a team of builders and designers in reforming the '56 into the truck it is today. They were able to use Chip's drawings as their design template.
