65 Nova Front and Rear

We had a customer with a 65 Nova that needed 2 new front seats and new upholstery on her already existing rear seat.  She chose the Classic Bucket for her front seats.  She was short so her concern was that she wouldn't be able to sit close enough to the wheel.  Simple fix:  we added 1" of foam to the backrest of the driver seat (her personal throne) to push her forward slightly. 

 

We got a surprise when we took her rear seat apart.  The original foam had turned to dust and the frame was so rusted, we were scared to touch it.  Check it out..

We had to sandblast and powder coat the frame to ensure it would last for years to come.

Everyone was so happy.  Success.  Next our designer made a pattern for the rear that matched the design of the Classic buckets and this was the result.

In the end, it all worked out and our customer was ecstatic.   We're dying to see the photos of everything installed.  Richard at Hot Rods & Custom Stuff in Escondido made custom mounting brackets to install her front seats.  Thanks to everyone involved.  Great project.

Shelby Series 1 Seats by Cerullo

Carroll Shelby, the famed race car driver, built limited edition high-performance vehicles such as the AC Shelby Cobra and the Shelby Mustangs produced in partnership with Ford Motor Company. He later developed performance cars for both General Motors and Chrysler.

At the age of 74, he built the Shelby Series I, and many consider this the crowning achievement. They featured an aluminum frame, carbon fiber body and a tuned Oldsmobile Aurora V-8 engine. Zero-to-sixty was achieved in just 4.4 seconds and could reach top speeds of 170 mph.  Mr. Shelby also chose to have Richard Cerullo build and furnish the seats for the Series 1.  This is one of our crowning achievements as an automotive seat manufacturer.

Expendables 1955 Ford F150

I'll bet you didn't know that we made the seats for Stallone's Expendables 55 Ford!  The truck was built and seat were installed by West Coast Customs.  WCC built 3 customized matte black 1955 Ford F100s. One was built for a crash scene, the second for green-screen, and the third for Sylvester Stallone to keep.

This is one of those projects that we're so proud to have been a part of.  They used the Cerullo SC Sport Seat in black vinyl and custom embroidered SS logo. 

 

1978 Pontiac Trans Am

One of our customers just sent us pictures of his Trans Am he's been working on for 2 years.   Wow, I'm touched and overjoyed to see this car finished.  We never really know what a car looks like or what it's going to look like finished when our customers place orders.  We know what our seats look like, but every car is different and every person has different taste in colors and seat styles.  Steve is now taking his Firebird to local shows and we finally get to see what we've been lucky enough to contribute to. 

Check out our XR Sport Seats in this beautiful car.  We used Light Grey vinyl with Charcoal Synergy Suede inserts.  Thank you Steve for choosing Cerullo and thank you for sending pictures.  Your car turned out great!!  Nice work. 

H2 Hummer 3rd Row Seat Installation Guide

I keep forgetting to share our youtube video showing a quick installation of our H2 Hummer 3rd Row seat.  The Hummer craze may be over, but we are still making quite a few of these a month.  This 42" wide bench seat replaces the single stock seat.  Installation is fairly simple, especially if your H2 Hummer is an earlier model dating before 2005.  If your H2 Hummer is newer, there is a little drilling involved.  After 2005 the factory relocated the spare tire from the inside of the cab, next to the single stock 3rd row seat to the outside rear of the vehicle.  It's that side, driver side, that you'll have to drill 2 holes.  Our video doesn't show this unfortunately.  However, the hole locations are marked by lug nuts that are still welded underneath the carriage.  This makes it simple and less scary to drill holes in your floor board.  Enjoy the video and give us a call to place your order.  We always have them in stock.  They come in Ebony (black) and Wheat (stock Hummer grey/tan color).  Thanks to our installer, Louie from Custom Truck Shop in San Dimas, CA.

LA Roadster Show 2017

Last weekend Cerullo had a nice large booth at the LA Roadster Show at the Pomona Fairground.  What a nice turn out it was.  We had hundreds of people pass the booth.  We saw lots of interest in our vintage El Camino bench seat as well as our SC Sport Seats.  We had a couple of great sales out of it too.  One of the highlights for me was seeing the booth for Pagano Rods and Customs; one of our favorite customers.  He had his red Impala showcased with Cerullo XR Sport Seats in red vinyl.  Wow she was pretty!!  We're looking forward to next year's show.
