Leeroy Custom Solutions


#1

This is the thread where I’ll be placing my unorthodox Bogliq USA cars, as well as practice building lore for a Bogliq exclusive (perhaps) tuning company.

Please PM me any thoughts or comments you have on my cars, to cut down on clutter, otherwise leave a like (if you want to) and thanks for checking out my thread!

1959 Leeroy Mutineer

Leeroy Custom Solutions was a bespoke coachbuilder from before WWII. James and Jesse Leeroy founded the company to build ultra luxury limousines out of more generic brands. During WWII, no-one would give the brothers any work as they were seen as rivals to all the other brands, well all except one. Konstantin realised that subcontracting the brothers to build low volume, high intricacy variants of the GPUV and the GPDV would free the Bogliq factory to build more of the generic variants. The brothers never forgot this kindness and, after the war, offered their services to Bogliq USA as a bespoke customiser of Bogliq products. Konstantin readily agreed and the beginning of a fascinating and productive (and current to this day) partnership was born.


Same car, from the rear

All Bogliqs were available for the coachbuilding program. Some buyers didn’t trust the new fangled monocoque chassis idea and others wanted to install an engine from a different Bogliq model. Leeroy custom built each car to the customers taste but the customer was limited to the Bogliq parts bin and, later on, bespoke Leeroy Racing tuner parts, so that their warranties would remain intact. All Leeroy custom models could be serviced at any Bogliq dealer and were given a specialised service schedule based off whatever parts were used to customise the car…

The Leeroy brothers did take liberties with the original Bogliq designs, using altered grilles, special paint jobs and bumpers to help distinguish a Leeroy from their mass produced brethren but never strayed too far from the standard set by Bogliq USA!

1961, Leeroy Racing tuning kits are first released at LAMAS!

Due to increased interest in Cafe racing and impromptu street Drag racing as the 50’s continued on, a growing market for performance parts was identified by Leeroy Customs. This new market resulted in Leeroy Customs setting up a R&D centre near the Laguna Seca racetrack in Salinas, California to develop performance kits for various popular, and not-so-popular Bogliq products.

In 1961, Leeroy Custom hosted the first LAMAS (Leeroy After-Market Auto Show) at Laguna Seca to showcase their new product and stimulate interest in the performance tuner industry as a whole.

Turn-key Custom Performance Solutions

Leeroy Customs also built two cars, based off Bogliq products, that were different enough to get their own registry and identification numbers. These cars were sold direct from Leeroy Customs and had to be special ordered from Leeroy Customs or, after verification checks, through the usual Bogliq Dealer Network. These cars were serviceable at any Bogliq dealership (as well as at either the Detroit or Salinas outlets) and Bogliq honoured the Leeroy Customs warranty.

Regular Bogliqs = blue
Leeroys = orange

Got it. :stuck_out_tongue:


#10

Jeeeeeenkins


#11

I felt Bogliq Blue would be wrong for Leeroy as well as Bogliq and I liked to use the orange valve covers in Kee, so I decided that Leeroy was getting orange as their signature colour from now on!

But Non-performance Leeroys like the special order ute will still be painted blue… Can’t make things too easy, lol!

1952 Corso di Fruinia (Origin of Leeroy Racing tuning parts!)

CdF%20Mutineer%20FR
The car that began the legend… the 1952 Bogliq Mutineer prepped by Leeroy Racing

After WWII the Leeroy brothers were looking for ways to expand their business beyond chrome upgrades and limited volume custom work on Bogliq products. One of the avenues of expansion selected was entering a attempted performance version of the, then new, Bogliq Mutineer into a long distance road race to prove performance cars could also be durable and reliable. The result was the first ever Leeroy Racing tuned Bogliq being built in 1952 for the Corso di Fruinia…

CdF%20Mutineer%20RR
Leeroy Orange and Powdercoat Black would remain Leeroy Racing staple colours right up to the present day…

James Leeroy would take the wheel and drive the race while Jesse Leeroy would do the navigating…
