Default Re: Obscure Shoebox

Here is the only other shoe box I know with '51 Chrysler quarters.

It graced the cover of March '54 Car Craft, while still under construction. The hood was said to be being modified to clear the beautifully chromed Caddy mill, which was the cover shot.



Every aspect of the car was state of the art, yet I've never seen pictures with the hood.
Does anyone know what became of it? Did it ever get that hood?

Article on the car in the March 1960 issue of Custom Cars magazine.
I don't have this issue... so I cant make a better scan.

That Norman Rector shoebox is my favorite sectioned ford. I love it because it doesnt have that euro-custom feel.
