    That is one clean '57 Ford front end. Understated and crisp, I like it!

  14. This car is cool. I wonder what the roof and windshield is on it. Ford Victoria maybe?

    Ian, the roof comes from a Cadillac. Car was created by Dee Wescott, and the good thing is that it is still around. Some more photos on the Custom Car Photo Archive site.

  16. Thanks Rik! Hadn't seen that one before. I like the front a lot better than the back but that Caddy roof looks great on it.

    If the name Dee Wescott rings a bell, it should!
    He was the originator of the famous "Wescott" fiberglass deuce bodies, used on many world famous hot rods.

    [​IMG]The bad part about this is that vertical challenged persons won't see the cool paint job on top.

    I agree with ya Mr. Gordon. The T Bird bumper looks like it should have been there from the factory.
