    Does anyone recognize this custom?
    Has obviously parts and features of 1946-48 Dodge D24, but proportions of the body are more like same era Cadillac...?
    Would be interesting to know the story behind this car and does it exist today.

    Thanks Rik. No clue thought, does it exist anymore?

    I can imagine, that back in 1947 it was considered ultra modern, ultra cool job.
    Apart from the bumpers, I actually find it quite good looking still...
     
  14. It actually resembles the '48 Lincoln vert that belongs to a friend of mine, the proportions are a little different but it does resemble the lincoln.
