Jeep Top and Off-Road Trailer

Jim provided the basic styling theme for this Jeep top, including the large side windows and small lower door window on the passenger side only. Jim also designed an off-road trailer as an accessory for the Jeep.

Restyling & Aftermarket

In the late 80's and early 90's, Jim designed several restyling packages for an aftermarket manufacturer. On many of these packages, Jim also did all of the clay work, as seen on the Thunderbird clay photo. Jim also created designs and sculpted the clays for the Beretta and Probe packages shown here. All of these cars were featured at the SEMA Show and in the enthusiast magazines at the time.

Some of the interesting features of the retro-themed Mustang GFX design are: Thunderbird headlights, cowl spoiler, low-center-mount driving lights, and turn signals in the side mirror (a characteristic of most of Jim's designs since the 1970's). The Thunderbird GFX and Probe GFX also featured cowl spoilers and turn signals in the side mirrors.
