Fun stuff! I just love old mags.
1963 Speed and Custom. This is my friend Wes Downing's car in 1963
same car last year
more speed and custom April 1963
HAHA,, who else built the "Big-T"? that sucker took up alot of room. This is a great thread. I have some "little books "and old hot rod mags and the ads in the back are a hoot. $200 on a full tuck and roll or diamond tuck. Heck, I'd brag about that now too.
Thanks for posting these. I remember a bunch of those cars from back then. If I remember correctly the Cad finned one was a Studebaker. We of course know Norm sold his T.
Thanks for posting... some really great stuff there.
More great stuff! Anyone out there have Car Craft from '62 thru '63? I remember my old auto shop teacher had his Hemi powered T in one back around then, he had the cover hanging in his office. It would be neat to see that again.

Check out the 44 images in 51mercules photo album on finding this Mercury !! plus some old cars for sale
I wonder how many of these cars still exist today and, if they even resemble what was originally built?
There are more salted away turning up in estate liquidations. I am sure that I am not the only one who knows a couple of guys that have had their cars since high school and will never sell them.
More back pages
Anyone know the year and magazine issue of the Durso's Dreamboat add?
I used to see that car parked outside his shop in Wappingers Falls when riding the bus to school in 1956. It's now owned by a fellow in Palm Beach, FL.
Wow! this is REALLY a great thread!!! I'm diggin' the diggers in post #33 and I never get tired of seeing the Ala Kart and Big Red T! Keep 'em coming...
rbantique----------I'm pretty sure I have this ad already, but where did you find this? I can't remember where I had seen it...
It was in the back of a hot rod magazine .. i can't remember which one as I've been through so many these past few days. It would be nice to have a time machine to go back and buy a few of these bargins.
interesting images from days gone by
back pages & 1963 hot rod attire
This thread is incredible. all this history and beauty in one place...
How is it that...despite all our progress in paint, metal work, tool availability and training...we rarely seem to hit this level of style and coolness?
Sure some of these cars are high dollar shop built vehicles...but many are not.
Man, my level of respect for these guys just went up another notch or two, if thats even possible!
A real eye opener. Keep them coming!!!
