The Mother of Convention will roll over in her grave when she sees the latest creation from Fuller Moto of Atlanta, Georgia. Bryan Fuller’s reputation for life-defining custom cars is already widely known, but the Thundertaker is one more otherworldly example of his design prowess. The 4-year, 10,000-hour, building process behind this masterful 1960 Cadillac limousine (Lot #388) offered at No Reserve at the 2016 Palm Beach Auction dramatically radiates quality and imagination everywhere you look.
It’s no wonder the Thundertaker became an instant superstar at the world-famous SEMA Show. Hot Rod magazine and even the Discovery Channel were smitten over this creation. The project actually began as a 4-door Cadillac limousine constructed by Superior Coach of Ohio. Once in the hands of the Fuller team, the original 156-inch chassis was replaced with a state-of-the-industry Art Morrison system, which is also the longest custom chassis this company ever produced.
