    Wow, very cool! I'll help spread the word! It would have been so cool if this one was stored away somewhere, just waiting to be completed!

    This is what I always thought the front end would be like if it kinda matched the front, which the Alexander Bros. were known to do. Now I am going to build a model of it with these lost pics, just what I was waiting for.:D

    Interesting to see the evolution of the taillights. First they did a single light on each side above a bumper (my favorite version), and then they changed it to two lights each side. I think Customcory's drawing shows a better frontend treatment than Harry Bradley's.

    Just goes to show that Bradley was a forward thinker, a 55 ford that ends up looking like a late 60's GM

    Uh, wow. Love the in-process pics, and even unfinished it has their look. Whether it ever turns up or not it's a great story. Thx ~
     
  6. That's really neat! I love your artwork, it really shows great imagination and your style is really neat. One of my favorites!

    It puzzles me why someone would buy an unfinished Alexander Brothers custom and not get them to finish it.

    Might be time for someone to think about building a clone of it.
