Those heads definitely have a 70's look to them!
That's so cool that the OP had those and that they are reunited with the car now, a tip of the hat to Eddragster!
Yeah, that’s pretty cool.
The whole thread makes me happy as hell.
Freakin awesome! Heads remind me of school football mascots and the paper mache' dummy head in the Alcatraz escape.
The stars sure lined up on this one!
Grab a lottery ticket Mark!
I'd put it on my head and walk around on Halloween. If you ever display the 57 at a show, have some real fun; sit in the car, wearing the head and a long sleeve shirt, then grab people when they get close.
Nose job. A little plastic surgery on a busted nose
How cool! random things I never knew existed being reunited
That is too cool. No negative waves for Mr. Moriarty.
Before and after
It’s like you’ve messed with plaster before....
Actually they are made of bondo over foam
That’s awesome. They looks great couldn’t think of a better home for them
That is just too cool. The heads look real happy in their new home too.
Now this brings a smile to a fella's face.
Check out the instruction sheet from the model kit. His name is Harold Ferndoc from Burbank
SOOOOO GOT IT MADE !
thats awsome you got those!
I didnt know you did plastic surgery too?
The giant backlit model boxes showed up today
Those are even better. Looks like the head in the '57 was wearing giant John Lennon type glasses at one time? Or maybe that was just on the box artwork. Still, so cool that these are back with the car.
Man, those things are so cool, in a creepy kind of way. Why do I expect to see Rod Serling standing in the background with a Winston dangling...
Must be just the box art. Here is a 1971 pic w/o glasses
Aaaaand the universe comes a little closer into alignment.
What?... No smiley????....
I thought something looked familiar..... box art was drawn by the great Dave Bell! I should've picked up on it from the pic of the 57 in the show, Good Boot on the front tire, one of Bell's signature changes. No wonder the heads also have a familiar look, a lot of Dave's drawings have the big noses!
close but no cigar... Drawn by Dave Deal
Got my Dave's mixed up I guess! Which one did the cartoons for Street Rodder, Deal, Bell, or both?
Dave Bell did the Henry Hirise cartoons in Street Rodder
