Over on the Rod & Custom website someone's posted some pics of this T-Bird with the hopes of uncovering more of the history of the car and its builder. I know nothing about it; in fact I don't think I've ever seen it before. But I'm sure there's people here that can help fill in some of the blanks. But that's not the real reason why I'm posting this. And here's where I may be revealing my ignorance of custom cars. But I find this car to be absolutely stunning! To my eyes, this vintage of T-Bird can't be the easiest thing to customize as it looks to be pretty well customized as it came off the line. There was another similar post here recently about the difficulty of trying to customize '55-6-7 Nomads. If you weren't careful it would be all too easy to screw it up. I guess you could chop the top on one of these 'Birds and it might look OK, but the idea of grafting a Starliner roof onto it just seems perfectly brilliant to me and makes it look like a factory styling studio job. So what do you think? Did the guy who built this just make it a little easier on himself by taking this approach. Or was there some sort of restrained genius at work on this one? And what other kinds of production cars do you think are particularly challenging to customize successfully?
