Inside proved even trickier. The fully loaded Magnum came from the factory with the optional Kicker sound system: a massive 276-watt amplifier wired to a 100-watt subwoofer and eleven speakers throughout the cabin. CDC opted for a Rockford Fosgate head unit with a flat flip-out-and-up LCD screen, able to play CDs and DVDs.
The final result was a handcrafted custom ride that Classic Design Concepts could use as a driver and show car, displaying not only their novel Shaker-hood system, but a cavalcade of new and innovative body modifications. All of CDC's body-mods are test-fitted to match the manufacturer's mounting brackets, hardware, and holes, and allow for factory and OE tolerances.
The Shaker Magnum is now on CDC's web site, displaying the different modifications available for Chrysler products. In addition, the Classic Design Concepts' Magnum will be on display at the massive SEMA show in Las Vegas and also at local car and manufacturer shows.
