About The Sniper,
The Sniper was unveiled at the 50th anniversary of
Hot Rod magazine.
Held at SEMA in Las Vegas,
it was the centerpiece at the VIP party.
Covered by a green parachute,
Dave McLellan introduced the Sniper as
the crowning achievement of fifty years of Hot Rodding.
As such, it is the last car shown in the
"50 Years of Hot Rodding" book,
signifying the progress and sophistication of the hobby.
Beginning life as a 1954 Plymouth Belvedere
this car was the brainchild of
Chip Foose & Troy Trepanier.
With help from Tom Gale, Chrysler's Chief of Design,
who donated a Viper GTS coupe
which provided the drive train, suspension,
wiring, gauges and seats,
the Sniper became a reality.
With parents from a Plymouth "Savoy" and
Dodge "Viper", the newborn child became.
