    John Lee Williamson, I love tubs and this is a custom 36 Buick Ex More Door that we are converting to a custom Tub. 36 buick.jpg 36 buick4.jpg 36 buick1.jpg

  5. A suggestion, look at Doan Spencers 32 with the Duval it has the corners tucked in, the outside posts are more parallel to the body sides and not sticking out like wings. I think the early Duval's were different than the recently made ones. You might want the earlier tucked in look?
    I love your Buick tub it's happening!!!

    Thanks, Rik, for your tireless efforts to preserve custom car history. Your photo archives are one of the customizing world's great treasures.

    That yellow 34 looks familiar. Could it be the Tex Smith touring?
