History '53-'54 Corvette Custom/ anyone know this car?

Discussion in 'Traditional Customs' started by BigO, Nov 3, 2016.

  1. Bought some old car pics off Etsy and one is of this vette with a '56 Studebaker Hawk grill, I don't recall seeing it before, I know the "Buster Dobb's" vette has this grill but the entire front is different unless there was an earlier version of of the Dobb's car. If anyone knows anything about this car or where it might be please let me know. Thanks, Michael

    From what I've read, Dobbs saw a custom Corvette in Custom Cars magazine that inspired his build, possibly that could be the one. Does anyone have any early 50's Custom Cars they could look through to find out if this Corvette is in there?

    Certainly works better on Buster's car. IMHO

  5. I agree, was just very surprised when I saw it,.
  6. I have hundreds of old magazines just didn't know where to start, now I do, any other opinions are welcome.
  7. Found this version but it has the "cove" sides. Now I'm even more confused. Never mind its the Bob Moreira Vette, sorry.... I'm better now.
