History Custom Tubs please, here's one of mine from 1985 -Thanks to Rik Hoving for many of the custom tub pi

  1. Kinda cool kinda mixed up 36 Ford tub. Might have (probably) started out as a 2 dr sedan, 40 gas filler door, removed running boards and reshaped fenders, in trouble top with a good back window. Dig the one Left hand tail light on the trunk area which was legal but barely. Over all pretty slippery custom from the 40's/50's

    Potential! I like the ride height. I am sure the owner is loving it the way it is now. Hey it's right hand drive.... Is it an Australian car?
