The original "Lil Bat".
I found it. Custom Craft Magazine, Apr., 1960. (Fabian Continental on cover.)
Owned and built by John Kingston, Kansas City, Mo.
Here it is at the Mid-America Auto Spectacular (Topeka, Kansas; Oct, 1959), wearing narrow whites.
(Erroneously reported on Kustomrama as a 1932 Ford.)
I believe it re-emerged about 50 years later (shod in the very same tires).
RIP Bill Hines.

Yo, Sancho. Just you and me, buddy.

Great grille surround!
Tom Davison posted this kool pic and background info.. "Tom got this’59 Impala, my dream car, in the fall of ’63. I first painted it in a candy gold, orange, red and black Cushenbery style fade, but had a fender bender before I had a chance to buff it out. This shows the Candy red over pink pearl that Ray Farhner sprayed for me (I was afraid of spraying candy). The whitewalls are General Royal 90 triple 3/8” whites with the inner two stripes painted black. Black pleats by Bob Sipes."
This one is done with African Mahogany and belongs to Clive Cussler the author.

May 1956 Car Craft cover car. Built by Gaylords and possibly the owner. (Article isn't clear on who did the "additional torch work").
Thanks atomickustom, you beat me to it. Easy to get distracted looking through a pile of 'little books'
