    I made rear fenders on a 1936 Ford Cabrio built by Glasses Coachworks in Germany some years back. They bought the complete frame write drivetrain and cowl. The floors and body structure was made of wood. It is done and currently on display at the early ford museum. I couldn't find any photos of the car finished.

    Kevin Anderson's "Crystal Cadillac", '47 Cad. While not strictly coachbuilt, it's heavily modified, beautifully built and finished. Note the flip open rear window. Pics taken at Custom Car Revival, Indy 2019. 20190607_194321.jpg 20190607_194153.jpg 20190608_123614.jpg

    was up at Coachcraft, a few years ago, they had moved to a town north of La. i had seen a pix of them making a new nose for a rdst. i have that was Keenan Wynn's in 40's-50's., we were out there for the La rdst show and we tracked them down. they gave me photo's of Keenan helping w/the nose and other pix of the car when in their shop. the son of orig owner said he remembered Keenan burning rubber w/car when at the shop years ago. the nose was damaged in a movie made in 1947 ,''THE OTHER LOVE". getting too old to finish the car now, time never waits....

Some incredible pics there. That Gurney Nutting Duesy is a Doozy. How about this 154 inch wheelbase two seater Cadillac 34 V16.

    That is a LOT of Cadillac for 2 people! Really beautiful, incredible proportions that you just couldn't get with a smaller car. What are the little flippers on the rear behind the trunk lid?

    I found a picture of the Glaser 1936. Glaser coach works was the company that built the first Porsche.
