    Just for kicks, I raised up the bumper to meet the leading edge of the hood, and adjusted the fender corner/lip to match. Though I just noticed I left some pixels in that should have been erased...Oh, well!

    I feel it's an improvement, but the original mod still looks skillfully done. Folds%20I%20(final).jpeg

Their red 55 convertible custom is sitting next to Angel Eyes at this show. I have pics of it as well. I hope these are still safe and sound with the family. Their son has a dead-nuts-on clone of the American Graffiti 55. I haven't seen any of these cars in over 25 years. These pics were taken in the late 80's.

    What is the name of this window style?

  24. The roof style is hardtopped and the window frame style, especially on these cars, would probably be called Matranga style after the Barris built Nick Matranga '40 Mercury.

    Thank you K13.
    A lot to learn and read in kustomizing. I could read the hole day long here and look at the pictures.

    Are these windows built by scratch or are they from a special car?
     
  27. Scratch built.

  28. 20181217_152049.jpg 20181217_152117.jpg Here's a couple shots of Alice Brunos' 55 convertible. After some online snooping I've learned that her and her husband, John, have both passed. Maybe someone will chime in that knows the whereabouts of their collection. I don't have a photo scanner so these are actually cell phone pics of the original 35mm pics and they do not do the quality of these cars any justice.
