  11. This Victoria belongs to my friend Dave Leather out of Pennsylvania. I heard he is going to try like crazy to take it to the CCR this weekend. Hope he makes it. Such a sweet sled! E

    Just thinking out loud...

    Another HAMBer posted a pair of early '60s Chevy pickup "nostrils" for sale, and it got me to thinking, couldn't those be turned into some interesting and unusual taillight housings for a kustom?

    I can picture putting red lexan behind all of the open areas and wiring it to have some openings as parking lights, some as brake lights and some as turn signals. Of course, youd have to fabricate the "buckets" in which to mount the bulbs.

    You could use a portion of the Chevy hood to blend into the bodywork, or form your own openings.

    Anyway, thanks for letting me get that out of my system! 20190605_191013.jpeg Screenshot_20190605-191132_Chrome.jpeg Screenshot_20190605-191312_Chrome.jpeg

    I see that this beautiful Fleetline was customized in the mid-Fifties by Dee Wescott.
    Below is the unique, Caddy-topped Merc that Wescott did for Chuck Traaen.
    It's still around, I'm happy to report.

    Wescott was later known for his high quality fiberglass reproduction Ford bodies.

    Yep Wescott worked on a lot of cars in the 50's and early 60's before going into the fiberglass business. He was one of the big names in the Portland area.
