Awesome posts and pics, RB. I may have missed seeing where these were originally published ??
These New England cars shown with the typed captions came from some late 50s to early 60s Hartford Autorama programs.
I also have 2 (stamped) Appleton 552s made into dummies that I was going to put on my Mercury but have decided to wait for some Appleton 112s at a reasonable price.
40 Ford conv with a Buick HT added.. Neat NH 1952 custom
Quite a nice motorcycle tow system and he's running those now famous Lyon wheelcovers too.

I built and drove this full custom Henry J,from 1959 to 1964,it was stolden in Miami Florida late 64 by some asswipe and gutted and trashed up in Sanroa Ga. I found out later,not wroth going up to get back. I was in Car Craft in jan 63. Like most customs,I was always doing something to it,one late update was adding a 1960 Corvair front bumper. Older parts were, windsheild was a rear window from a 1953 Studebaker hardtop coupe,53 tunnel gages Desoto dash board,58 Ford grill,part of 60 Chevy hood from a new car wreck as trunk panel and rolled rear pan,wheelwells were homemade stainless steel,and folding top from a 55 T-Bird,6 of the 56 Buick fender EX ports backword on hood as intake ports in a "V",bull nosed,franched head lights that were tunneled with screen stonegrates,power by Rocket 98 Olds V8.
I'm now 71 and ancient east cost custom,didn't seem old at the time. still think of it as a new design
Pretty cool, Dana. You got a young start cutting that one up. Thanks for sharing. I'll have to look it up in my collection of CC. Lot of good customs in Car Craft back then.
Sorry only the one posted. Bob was quite the motorcycle guy over the years, a Blue Knight, & passed away several years ago.

Red and Vinny Ansetta's 1951 Crestliner
Herb Gary built for Steve Scravani my favorite Herb Gary Car. I've been trying to track this car down for years, disappeared
Most likely the 1st Lead East and Sledscene East at VA beach are not ancient but 30 years seems like a LONG time ago to me.
