Bodie Stroud Returns to TV on New Season of ‘American Restoration’

Nov 20, 2015

Bodie Stroud is no stranger to the world of television, having previously worked on Rock My RV and Monster Garage. Now, he and his Los Angeles-based shop have been picked to star in the rebooted HISTORY series American Restoration.

Stroud and his crew will be featured in each of the 13 episodes of the new season, alongside four other shops from across the country, according to a press release.

“I am very excited for the opportunity to be a part of the American Restoration series and I can’t wait for the show to premiere,” Stroud said. “My crew and I have been working very hard on several restoration projects in the shop for the past six months and I can’t wait to show the world the custom car builds and restorations we have been pouring our blood, sweat, and tears into.”

Stroud has been fabricating and building vehicles for more than 20 years. He gained recognition in 2009 when he was awarded the Ford Design Award for his 1960 Ford Starliner dubbed “The Scarliner.”

Since then, he has been building custom cars, including projects for celebrities like Tim Allen, Johnny Depp, Drea de Matteo and Johnny Knoxville. He is currently restoring a vintage Lamborghini for comedian Adam Carolla, along with other projects.
