Steve Moal of Moal Coachbuilders in Oakland, California, comes from a long line of skilled metal workers going back to his grandfather William who emigrated here to the United States from France. Steve’s shop carries on a tradition carried forward by his father George and today Steve and his wife and sons design, engineer, fabricate, and assemble custom coachcraft vehicles for the most discerning automotive enthusiasts. His skilled team of artisans create, and build distinct and spirited high-performance motorcars that are recognized around the world as works of art.
Steve talks about working on creating an environment where they complete jobs with the same ambition that they started the project with. Overcoming all the challenges that can derail a project is the key.
