    TWO LEFT? OK, that auction will be pricey. But, for some reason, it looks like it could be an early Ford Cobra Coupe in the making. Lower the front, get different wheels and tires and an intimidating old style Ford now has the stance to go with the Corvette motor.

    Historians will have a field day with those alterations. But from the 90 degree side angle, it looks like a custom early Buick two door coupe.

    IMHO, it would look better with a slight Cal Rake instead of being lowered to the ground. Blackwall tires instead of the whitewalls fits better overall. Then those early chrome wires would stand out. Or replace with them with Buick Skylark Wire Wheels and blackwall tires.
  3. Such amazing styling.

    Those are pretty sweet.

    This convertible one has a really cool dash.

    These are classic French custom cars from Vega, and as written make great customs or modified sports specials. They don't need much as the roof lines are especially attractive. These two pictures were taken at a national V8 Ford Western meet and you can clearly see the beauty in the design. Comete.jpg Comete Interior.jpg

    It's too bad they weren't sold here.
