    Ditch the visor and the rear window louvers and you've really got something! :D

    Such a beauty...The unusual two-tone just makes this car.
    I saw an early magazine (Custom Rodder) photo of the car, painted completely in a deep maroon (I believe shot by DaRosa?). Although it already sported its distinctive side trim, the car simply was not the sensation it was to become.
    Does anyone remember, or have a photo? (I think DaRosa's orange 4-door was in the same issue, if possibly not featured.) You may not have recognized it, nor thought twice about it!

    That's very interesting! It has been the "Bruce Geisler" truck for more than a half a century...and proudly so!
    Does the original grille still exist (and will it be used)?

    Starbird car show is this weekend in Tulsa, Ok. I'm so blessed to live by so much kustom history. Love these old Kustom show pics...

  24. Jim Bobowski, the son of the gentleman that owns the Ayala build Eddie Dye Roadster now owns the truck and is having it redone to the Ayala configuration.

  28. Might they be '55 Chevy fender lips? I was going to put a set on my Fleetline a million years ago, but that project went down the road before it happened.
