House elevators, when done right, draw quite a bit of attention from homeowners and builders alike. If you don’t believe it, just ask Craig Jones, who leads Country Home Elevator & Stair Lift. For more than 30 years, he and the company have been customizing lifts from their office in Brighton, Missouri, with other locations in Olathe, Kansas; Tulsa, Oklahoma; Rogers, Arkansas; and St. Charles, Missouri. From a launch during which elevator demo units were installed in model homes and a Parade of Homes project, to today’s choice among many for installations and repairs, Country Home has become a winner for fans and unit owners alike.
But there are other winning projects from Jones. As a side operation, he has launched Classic Car Barn Finds, where he restores and sells classic, customized cars. For the show and system, Barrett-Jackson, a long-time bidding program for top-of-the-line, renewed historic vehicles, fans were ecstatic when they viewed the upgraded version of Jones’ 1970 Ford Mustang Custom Fastback. With painstaking renewal, the road-ready hot rod boasts every bell and whistle reflection a perfect design for this true, one-of-a-kind sports car. Among the sparkling, white vehicle’s complete with black trim, updates are:
- A 351 cu. in. V8 engine
- A white interior to match the customized body style
- New replacement (for the most part) of the vehicle’s metal exterior
- Louvered back window and custom rear spoiler
- A five-speed manual transmission
- Customized, stylish wheels with high-performance tires
Yes, Craig Jones is an expert on classic home elevators. Now you know he’s also on top when it comes to refurbished hot rods. Check out the proof on Barrett-Jackson’s web site. And, for more info on Country Home, visit their internet site.
