Harry Westergard and Dick Bertoluccie are two of teh pioneers in custom car building. Both craftsmen where building typical custom cars before and right after WW2. Harry Westergard is the "inventor" of the taildragger look with small LaSalle/ Packard noses, sollid hood sides rear fender skirts and that awesome speed boat tailldragging stance. Harry Westergard has been working for Dick Bertolucci for some time and together they have turned out some georgious customs. This Westergurad custom '36 Ford convertible has all the typical Westergards styling elements. '38 LaSalle grille, sollid hood sides, lowered and long (ussually Caddy/buick or Chevy units) headlights molded into the fenders, fender skirts. chopped tops (padded hard top in this case) Loweerd more in th back. Hubcaps looks to be some early style aftermarket units. (note: on black wall tires) Horn grilles are replaced with turn signals, and beautiful bumpers both front and rear. License plate is sunk into the rear of the body and has wonderful chrome trim added. It looks to sit behind a glass plate as well. Another nice '36 Ford Westergard built was this roadster for Vern Simons. Packard grille, sollid hood sides, '37 DeSoto bumpers, molded in and lowered headlights, and the beltline molding all smoothed. This Westergard custom survived and this is how it looks today... it sure could be restored... hope so.
