    Interesting use of what looks like a narrowed '49-'50 Ford dash.

     
  9. Luke's had the car in KI twice.I can't get enough of it,lucky it's a New England car so I get to see it at shows! BTW I need another pair of these bumper guards for my car if anyone has some.

    Back to the Top! Theres got to be some more cars built recently that have that beautiful, classy restraint of the early 50s.

    I will be posting my car up on here once its finished its re-transformation, to become more era correct, but as for now... lets see some more!!

    Well, winter is the right time. I finally got the nerve to take a little of the top, three inches in front, four in back. I'm still getting used to the new profile, but it's growing on me quick. Hopefully shiny sometime soon, and some full wheel covers if I can find them. I need 16" if they exist.

    hi this is glenn with the 35 ford. thanks alot for all the nice comments on my car.. 4 1/2 years of searching for the right parts , cutting ans reshaping the 5 window coupe into a roadster and all the other mods ive done really paid off.. this has always been the car i wanted and was the hardest to create. the rest of the cars like the 50 ford with the carson top , i read the whole story in ki and am impressed. youve got a awrsome car . also the 3w dodge, wow thats the coolest dodge arround. ive always been arround kustoms and have seen that smooth and simple is the way to go. also thanks to everyone that is keeping the era correct kustoms going. without us its gone forever!!!!
