    How cool is that. Great looking roadster.
    Id never change those tail lights. Pretty much the best lights I've ever seen.
    Thanks for sharing JB

    The car was in the Dragone Classic Cars tent, so I assume it was for sale.

    Seeing the picture of that restored stock one, this one should be restored the same way. I love hot rods and cutting shit up, but it's going to be near impossible to improve on that. Wild.

    I've never understood why the custom car guys didn't go after the big cars of the 20s-30s. The lines are beautiful to start with, the car were worth nothing back in the 50s and 60s.

    Quite an elegant automobile. I wonder if they made a black and red version, that and some chrome wires with wide whites, Wow!

    That is one stunning car. The body lines are amazing...especially the loop around the doors. The taillights are simply art deco works of art.

    Love it all, the dash flow into the doors, tail lights, windshield angle, rounded tail; that's a classy car. I'll probably never have anything that rare, but it's cool. Restored would be cool enough, but I can see it fenderless and hot rodded as well.

    I can see it done in my head. Black and burnt orange, blackwalls, all the proper chrome, rawhide color to the leather, tan top with rawhide bindings and wireon. The burnt orange on the fenders and belt lines. In lieu of black, a rich brown maybe. nice and deep like dark chocolate and of course the plaid lines in a rich buttery tan color. Where do I sign? Who's in?

    Does "Bard Find" have some deeper meaning or is that just a typo?

    I vote to restore. Very few cars need to be restored to original, but this one makes the short list.

    Wow. Just one week ago I was standing at the WK club tent at Hershey swinging the crank on the engine demonstrator, an annual ritual for me. Clearly, the design was a gift from ancient alien visitors...

    What a magnificent car! It's decades overdue for a proper restoration!
    The car was stashed when it was a young 24 years old, and it's about 90 now.

    It would be awesome to know it's history from 1930-1954. One things for sure, it must have sat out in the open, filling up with snow/rain for quite a few years. By the looks of the rot in the lower/rear body it may have been sitting facing up hill. Quarters and tailpan are shot. Wonder how much floor is left? She'll save nicely.
