    More than likely a 64-66 Thunderbird.. Make sure the VIN numbes match!! Its a good deal if you are into that sort of obscure mid60-late 80's experimental Kustom.

    There is a Purple or lavender Merc out there with a similar hood treatment, I feel it may have stacked square quad headlights. also another crazy Kustom.

    I agree the windshield and vent windows look to be Thunderbird but most of it is 1954 Kaiser. Larry

    Tried to find an example, but B IMG_20200908_0001.jpg ad Merc beat me to it. Different car, but you can see the similarities.

    More shots.
    Like I said make sure title or pink matches the actual vehicle but looks like it had plates.
    Look on the bright side. No one will steal you custom car.

    My wifes says, well.. if you want an Ugly Kustom.....

    I would run it will a few mods, if the car has the T-bird Roadster cover, remove the rear conti kit, new wheels and tires, wait.. its whole new project after that. apparently runs and drives.

    Looks a bit like a 1951 Kaiser Frazier.

    Its amazing how the corners on the rear bumper look like clam shell thrust reverser's on a jet engine, while this custom car really didn't need a continental kit in my opinion, by not having one, it might have let the rear bumper be brought in a lot closer. YMMV.

    Based on the windshield and door vent windows, looks like it was a 60’s -70’s car that was skinned to look like a 50’s custom car.

    The inside door handles look like 3rd gen Camaro (1982-1992)

    That Darrin Dip in the beltline is definitely Kaiser

    Minus the top it’s kinda doable. With side window added or different top to not look like a diaper or car port I think it could be a take a second look ride.

    It looks like it was a Kaiser in its better life.

    That was my first thought too. I guess with all the kool customs out there someone has to create the turd wagons to give us something to make fun of:rolleyes: To each his own, just glad that one is his!!

    Man, that thing is radical - I like it!
     
  28. If it's a real old custom, it is cool.
    That said, the interior is hideous.
