    Jeffery,
    That '53 Chevy was my dad's custom; he built that car. I can remember as a little kid playing in it in my grandfather's basement. It was indeed in the '62 World's Fair as well as a bunch of other car shows around the pacific northwest in the early 60's. My dad's still around and can give you all the info you need. Shoot me an email if you want- timcuts at gmail dot com
