    I like that interior a lot. It looks very classy but not sissy.

    Best looking headlight treatment on a 57 ford ever, the stock lights killed the looks of these cars

    I think the '57 Fords are some of the prettiest cars ever to come out of Detroit. The only ugly parts on the cars, as texasred says, are the headlights. Lots of folks fixed that by using '56 pickup rings, which took care of that problem pretty easily. But adapting those Caddy lights is WAY Kool!

    I agree, the '57 Caddy headlight buckets, looks like they belong there. When you see it at Pomona be sure to check it out, a lot more kustom work has been done that we hadn't talked about. Can't wait to see it with the hood, grill, trunk windshield etc., IMG_0285.jpg

    Those Cad headlights REALLY fit. The grille? Don't think it fits. But that's my opinion. And we know how that goes.
     
  19. Those headlights are pointing at the ground......

  21. What a fantastic custom.
    But IMHO there's something wrong with those headlights. Also they look like long fingernails, not to fond about them.

    The extended headlight brows work for this car. With the big tail fins and the wild interior, I don't think subtlety is the desired end result, and the extended brows fit with the exaggerated theme of the car. Very cool.

    Love it! Excellent work.

    Its like the 5 blind men trying to describe a elephant after each one of them has laid a hand on it .
    The individual pictures of parts of the car doesn't show the whole picture . The car is a Kustom with Class ,Style and Attitude . I hope you get to see it in person . It takes time and several walk arounds to grasp the extent of the build . Its very WOW . But that is my take on it.
