No matter the type – busted bikes or rusted out roadsters – every vehicle deserves a second chance to shine. Outside Austin, Texas mechanical master Joe Martin (the winner of Discovery Channel’s “Biker Build-Off”), his wife Amanda, his best friend Jayson “Shag” Arrington and their team at Martin Bros Customs are breathing life back into vehicles of all kinds, shapes and sizes on the Velocity original series IRON RESURRECTION, world premiering on Wednesday, April 13 at 10 PM ET/PT.

Part pickers, part WHEELER DEALERS and part custom fabrication, each episode of IRON RESURRECTION finds Shag and Amanda scouring the Texas countryside for hidden, unpolished mechanical gems to bring back to the shop for Joe and his crew. Amanda, the beauty and brains of Martin Bros Customs, keeps the jobs rolling out and the dollars rolling in with her uncanny knowledge of every backwoods shed and car lot in the state. While Shag, dubbed “the fastest mouth in the south,” uses his gift for gab and marketing skills to get the best deals possible.

Then it’s back to Martin Bros Customs where Joe’s small but mighty team of Shorty, Mike, Jason, Manny and Pompa work metal magic on Shag and Amanda’s finds in order to turn Joe’s vision for the unpolished gems into shiny, hot rod reality. In the end Shag works his magic with a new buyer to get the highest price for the revived Martin Bros Customs creation. Raising the dead is never easy, but together this Texas team of gearheads can restore any rusted pile of metal into the hottest cars and craziest choppers in the world.

IRON RESURRECTION airs Wednesdays at 10 PM ET/PT beginning Wednesday, April 13 only on Velocity.

Full Episode Order Below (All Times ET/PT)

“Texas Two Step”
World Premiere
Wednesday, April 13 at 10 PM

Shag and Amanda return from the road with a classic 1962 Chevy Stepside truck that Joe plans on transforming into an ultra-cool, ground hugging Fleetside. The team at Martin Bros Customs wrestles with Joe’s vision for the truck as they resurrect it into a show-stopping, eye-popping piece of drivable art for an upcoming car show.

“Lonestar Lincoln”
World Premiere
Wednesday, April 20 at 10 PM

An old family friend helps Shag and Amanda bring home a 1964 Lincoln Continental, one of Joe’s favorite cars, without breaking the bank. With one of the most popular show and shines in the state of Texas on the horizon, Joe and the team work hard to take the rusted wreck from shabby to a shiny new four-wheeled pearl.

“Shaggin’ Wagon”
World Premiere
Wednesday, April 27 at 10 PM

West Coast cool becomes the theme when Shag and Amanda stumble upon an exceptional find – a 1953 Ford Ranch Wagon. Joe automatically has visions of a bad-ass California style beach cruiser for the Wagon. That means the team at Martin Bros Customs must set the stance low and create a fantastic, head turning exterior.

“Barbecued Bird”
World Premiere
Wednesday, May 4 at 10 PM

Joe and his team get the chance to refurbish a 1973 Pontiac Firebird that’s been damaged by fire. This build requires resourcefulness as the guys start from the ground up ditching many of the original parts for all new Martin Bros Customs modifications including a custom roll cage and a new rear spoiler built from scratch. Like a phoenix from the ashes, this burnt bird is getting an all-out restoration so it can fly once again.

“Hardcore Softail”
World Premiere
Wednesday, May 11 at 10 PM

It’s a walk down memory lane when Joe ditches four wheeled machines in favor of his first love – a souped-up Softail® motorcycle. He works with the guys to build it from the ground up, complete with a custom fuel tank, exhaust system and frame. Meanwhile Shag and Amanda are on the road, having fun hunting for parts for a moneymaker milk truck build.

“Triple Black Cadillac”
World Premiere
Wednesday, May 18 at 10 PM

Shag and Amanda trek through Texas to find a build worthy of the Martin Brothers’ touch. They bring back a busted 1964 Cadillac De Ville that Joe helps into a big-bodied beauty of a convertible. After, Joe and Mike head to the marina in search of a boat to flip for some quick cash. But trouble with the boat’s engine and a ton of hidden rust on the De Ville could spell trouble for the crew.
