    Roxanne was built in 99/2000 in the vein of George Barris and Big Daddy Roth by Tom Culbertson using all hand-formed steel starting with a 1957 Thunderbird. The windshield was chopped and '58 Lincoln headlights were fitted along with '59 Buick tail lights installed. Large rear tail fins lend a rocketship appearance and alot more. The interior is diamond pleated white naugayhyde and a 1961 Chrysler glass dome dash installed, 60 plymouth aero wheel. The door handles are shaved and custom front grille and rear tail panel installed. A high performance 351 Ford engine and Ford C4 automatic transmission were rebuilt prior to installation. The engine bay is show prepared with diamond pleated naugahyde trim and the trunk has a retro 1950s television and matching accessories. The paint is 14k gold. This car has won every major show entered in the Radical Custom class including The Oakland Roadster Show, Sacramento Roadster Show and Lead Sled East. Fantastic radical custom car. Awards not included.

    Condition: The car runs and drives good but the car does need some work being it was built 15 years ago, First thing if you are planning to drive the car a lot the brakes do need attention, in my opinion it needs a vaccuum canister(the engine has a big cam, and overtime maybe put a stall converter or a smaller cam) The body is not perfect, altough I DONT recall seeing any rust bubbles which is great for the paint 15 years old!, but overtime the car did get a couple hairline cracks and a few road chips and etc but as you can see shows great! The dash gauges were never hooked and the headers started to leak. Im sure theres more but if you have any questions please give me a call/text 973 508 2560 mike
    Also the car was just feature and rod n kulture magazine recently
    Im selling because I could use to money too finish uo my other projects, but would if interested in trades, really for other traditional kustoms but cant hurt to ask 02fe9a2e5046ef87959efeb1567362a9 (1).jpg 161115_Rear_3-4_Web.jpg IMG_1542.JPG IMG_1553.PNG IMG_1549.JPG 161115_Engine_Web (1).jpg
