Can't Beat the Classics!

Classic cars, hot rods or muscle cars are only some of the specialty and custom vehicle wraps we offer at Surf City Graphics. Whatever vehicle fulfills your need for speed, we have the team to make your wildest visions come to life.  Here at Surf City Graphics we do all of our design, prints and installations in house.  Being an in house design, print, and installation shop, allows us to devote the time, ingenuity and labor into which these vehicles deserve.


We design it, print it and install it...just the way you want it!
Design:  No two antique vehicles are alike. Therefore, we pride ourselves in being able to create specific templates that don’t exist in today’s design world. We start with a survey of your vehicle, take measurements and photos to create an individual template exact to your vehicle’s every curve and unique body lines.
Print:   We use premium materials: 5 year removable Avery and 3M vinyl with clear UV laminate, optically clear window film. All graphics are printed on our HP Latex large format digital printer, providing the highest quality print and resolution (at true 1200 dpi). HP is designing end-to-end sustainability into large-format printing. The HP Latex 315 Printer is EPEAT Bronze registered and Green Guard Gold Certified—a designation for reduced environmental impact.
Installation:  Placement, an eye for detail, and patience are a must when it comes to installing custom vehicle wraps and graphics. Our installation process can take anywhere from a few hours to a few days, depending on the details and specifications needed for each vehicle. Your vehicle graphics are in good hands with our 3M certified installers…literally.

The Rebirth of Kenny Hedman's Hedman Husler Maverick

“If you’re a header manufacturer, what better way to test and publicize your products than to run them on your own out of sight Pro Stocker,” read an article published in the February 1972 issue of HOT ROD Magazine.
The first Hedman Hedders Pro Stock Ford Maverick, campaigned by Kenny & Dick Hedman, was stolen the night of a big magazine awards banquet held at the end of the 1970 Indy Nationals. The motor was eventually found in a haystack in Greenfield, Indiana, but the body and chassis vanished into thin air, never to be seen again. Kenny Hedman, who is the son of Hedman Hedders founder Bob Hedman, would not let this setback end the team’s racing story, or hamper Hedman’s real-world product development. Kenny, Dick (Kenny’s brother), and the rest of the guys got to work on their next-generation race car— And the new “Hedman Husler” M
averick was reborn into Pro Stock competition.
