Back in October we asked our customers, via email and social media, to please send us some of their Christmas Themed photos that we could include in our Christmas Flyer. For their trouble we promised to give away some Danchuk goodies to those who were used in the flyer and to run a contest for everyone that sent in a picture. Some people, like James Wright (above), had photos at the ready and others made them up for the contest and they all told us about their ride, or how the photo came about etc. Really cool.
Thank you to all 28 of our customers who took the time to respond and send us photos. Continue reading →
On July 26, 2019 Jeff Lutz sent us this photo of “The 57”. The 57 was wrecked while doing some testing for the upcoming season of Street Outlaws, and Jeff needed to have The 57 rebuilt in 10 days! Danchuk went into action immediately to do everything possible to facilitate the project.
The first hurdle was to get a quarter panel and rocker panel shipped nearly 2,500 miles east from California to Pennsylvania. Danchuk got the body parts and a bunch of beautiful, high quality Made in the USA parts on their way while Jeff’s crew began the teardown of The 57. Continue reading →

Since it is the time of the year we make our Seconds available to our customers we wanted to show you these too. But this is a little different situation so we felt that more information was going to be necessary so we make sure everyone knows what the problems are with this part and why it is a Second. Also, as these are no longer being produced the ones we have with this defect are the only ones left in the world. As such, we cannot replace these Seconds with a First Run part if you are not happy because there are no more available.
The main reason these were deemed Seconds are pointed out in the photos. It is an issue with the tool used to stamp these and it effects the bottom of the bumper at the curves where the front curves into the sides of the car. The company making these has decided not to try and fix or replace the tool. So there will be no more unless someone else decides to make them. We took the photos of the problem areas and tried to point them out so there were no surprises. We also took video so you could see how they looked from the front and all over.
We have a limited quantity of these Seconds with the same defect in each at the bottom of the curves in the corners. Plating and such is pretty darn nice and the rest of the Bumper is very Continue reading →
Last week there was another round of the Super Chevy “Week to Wicked” series.

As usual they started bright and early on Monday Morning Continue reading →
The Danchuk Seconds Sale Is Almost Gone Until 2020
EXTREMELY LIMITED QUANTITIES STILL AVAILABLE
We make many parts and unfortunately some of them do not meet our specifications for a First Run Danchuk Part. So, we have Seconds. When we have our sale each September we only advertise the parts we have in abundance so we don’t disappoint too many people. On October 16 we updated the Seconds list with what we still have available from the first batch and all the items we only have one or two of. But Hurry. We won’t update the list again until 2020.

As the days get shorter and the evenings become cooler there are not too many more months left to enjoy our toys. Soon, most of us will have to put them away until the warmer temperatures return.
To help you make sure your car comes out of hibernation in the best condition it can we put together a quick checklist of things you should probably be doing when that time comes. Read On.
The first is a no brainer. You want to find a safe, secure and dry spot to store your car. Excess moisture can really take a toll when left unchecked for months.
Wash your car. And be sure to clean top and underneath. Road debris and grime needs to be cleaned away so it does not create problems.
Wax the car. Besides being a lot of fun, waxing will help maintain the shine and will protect and preserve the color of your paint during the winter months.
Clean the upholstery. Get all those loose fries and pieces of paper the kids, Continue reading →
Why Seconds? Well, our Quality Control Department are very very picky so every part we make doesn’t always qualify to be deemed a First Run part. These seconds are parts with slight blemishes in the finish that we can’t sell as First Run. They are still the same quality in fit that you have come to expect from Danchuk, with slight irregularities. Bad for us but good for you because you can buy them for your project and save big!**
We will have the whole company manning the phones starting at 7 am PDT to take your Seconds Sale orders. Call early for the best selection and if you get a busy signal keep trying. Things get a little hectic at first, but everyone will get thru.
And remember…Just because it is not in the list of available Seconds does not mean we don’t have it available. If the quantities we had on hand were too few to warrant advertising the part we didn’t, so feel free to ask for any part we manufacture as a Second….you might get surprised!
Sorry, Seconds cannot be ordered from our website, only by phone. No orders placed at www.danchuk.com will be considered orders for Seconds.
No Seconds Sale orders will be taken prior to 7 am PST on Wednesday, September 18th. Call 800-260-6254 on Wednesday September 18th to order!
In 2020, Danchuk will be helping Jeff Lutz rebuild the ‘57 known as “The Beast”. Watch for the story on Discovery, at danchuk.com, and on Danchuk social media.
“Danchuk Manufacturing, Inc. is proud to be a sponsor of Street Outlaws Star (and Drag Week Legend), Jeff Lutz, for the 2019 season.”
We first became aware of Jeff, owner of Lutz Race Cars in Callery, PA, when we started seeing various video clips on YouTube of a wicked black 1957 Chevy pulling insane numbers on the dyno and running down different tracks. Just teasers for us. From then on we followed Jeff around the Internet. Continue reading →
