Still a bit dirty. But She'll get there.
^ That looks like an earlier custom that someone 'updated.'
Roger O'Dell sent me a message, he talked to the Owner of the wagon, Richie at Unique twist body shop. He said they were slide outs. Thanks Roger for the info.
I really, really really like this Merc.
The Flyin Hawaiian.
Sad story behind this car. JGDesign and Fab spent years building this car. They did a mad dash to finish it to debut it Saturday at the Ventura Nationals this year. Unfortunately Justin got a call the day before the show that the owner passed away. If you have Instagram you can hear about it at @JGDesign_Fab account.
That is a sad story, a friend of mine went through the same thing. Thanks for the IG link
Thanks for passing on that info about the rear side windows along
My 1951 Ford Victoria and my friends freshly finished 1951 Ford Sedan. Lots of little custom modifications on the Sedan.
Your friend's shoebox sedan looks like it drove right off the little pages onto the HAMB
This '59 Impala reminds me of James Kudla's '60 Impala known as "Exotica" built back in the late 70s or early 80s. We covered "Exotica" over on the W.E.H.T. thread back in 2017. It was W.E.H.T. #84. Here's a link to make some comparisons.
Hard to believe someone cut up a '59 Impala. Nice to see people thinking outside the box doing some radical stuff to "rare and expensive" cars nowadays. I see the car has a "Dukes" plaque on it. See, not all lowriders are G bodies with mile high hydraulics and a 25 color 15 thousand dollar kandy paint job. This '59 is custom all the way! E
Did the rear wheel openings come in that shape from the factory?
Hey Ed, that car is a 60, look at the shape of the fins on the decklid.....
No. They were more square. These are 56/57 Chevy.
Oh yeah, I know. I was just talking about both cars from a custom styling standpoint. E
like the hats!
duh... sorry man.... I knew you knew better.....
