SEMA: 2009 Ford Flex by Chip Foose

Even though Ford’s crossover won’t go on sale before summer 2008, that didn’t deter FoMoCo from presenting a supped up version penned by custom car designer and host of the Overhaulin TV Show, Chip Foose.

That aside, the customized Flex crossover with the two-tone blue and cream pearl paint job gets humongous 22-inch alloy rims and lowered Eibach springs for a more dynamic stance. Additional exterior details include painted appliqué door handles and a relocated license plate. Moving into the cabin, the Chip Foose chose to equip the Flex with three-tone blue, gray and tan premium leather surfaces by Katzkin Leather. –Continued

“When Ford called, I was quite excited to be one of the first to get my hands on the Flex,” says Foose. “I didn’t want the individual pieces I added to be the most eye-catching parts. I wanted it to look as if it came from Ford’s design studio.”
