    Nope! Dave William's of William's Low Buck Tools fame. If I remember correctly , he ran the louver press for Betz and built this car in the very late fifties or early sixties.

    X3, like Frank said, it really kinda reminds you of a lot of those late fifties colors like Regal Turquoise or Bahama Blue. Good choice.

    Wow! Now that looks like a blast to tear around in!
    Are my eyes deceiving me or is that a cut down 5 window?

    5w or a sport coupe..It is wide at the A pillars, but can't be a 3w or a cabriolet, as those 2 did not have a bead on either side of the decklid.

    It started life as a 5W Coupe and was modified somewhere in the late 50's or early 60's in Michigan.

    Any idea where I can find more pictures of it?
    Always been a sucker for the east coast style of Hot Rod. :D

    Oh yea! Thast ONE time that I think the second owner actually improved on what the original builder did. The changes Granatelli did MADE that car, IMO.

    Hilborn 2 port. The car was famous in its day, both as a Nationals competitor and magazine cover car. You can find a little more about it in the following thread: http://www.jalopyjournal.com/forum/showthread.php?p=4188174
