“My involvement in the automotive world began at a very young age. I grew up in a car family. My father, uncles and family friends all either had project cars of their own, or worked in the auto industry,” says Marcus Gervais.
Growing up, his dad had a 1978 King Cobra and a 1955 Ford F-100 – so Marcus was always watching and helping as a child. By the time he was 12, Marcus had helped his dad swap in a 428 tri-power into the ’55 Ford F-100.
Eventually, Gervais entered the world of mechanics on a professional-level and actually went on to earn his automotive education with an emphasis on auto body. He worked in a series of body shops and Mustang restoration specialists for some time before going to work at a Ford dealership.
Marcus’ build list is actually quite lengthy, so we’re going to get right into it. You may want to grab a drink.
