    I came across a photo taken in Vancouver, B.C. Canada, the event was the Pacific National Exhibition parade on Hastings Street on Aug of 1955, I believe the photo is of the late Jack Williams custom Ford which had a Cadillac V12 motor.

    Good looking car. Looks like a shoe horn fit on the engine. I like the side trim as well.

  3. That would be the (BCCCA ), BC Custom Car Association, about two years before the (BCHRA), BC Hot Rod Association was formed.

    Yes the side trim was from a 53 Buick, and the car looked like this later on. Fred Fredette ex Jack Williams shoebox.jpg

    The car is on Vancouver Island, but I understand does not have the same power plant installed by Jack Williams back in the day.

    That would be a '51 Meteor grille. Be interesting to see this one. I've been on the Island over 40 years and have never seen this car at any shows or rod runs.
