How 'bout this?
Lowered tail lights, shortened hood trim, '46 style skirts, '55 Packard caps.

It's hard to tell from old photos, of course (notice grass): but Dodge/Desoto Adventurer Gold was very popular in its day.
I love it!
(Scooped cruiser skirts would be nice. ;))
(Below) The Barris Bros. had their hands on this one.
