Well it's a start...... just brought her home and haven't had much time to get her apart and get the body on to the rotisserie yet...... still deciding on what drivetrain I'm going with but excited to get started
Very kool project. Please keep us posted with your progress.
Dennis McPhail did a great job with this years art work for the Kustom Kemps of America's Lead Sled Spectacular
You don't see many split roof Shoebox chops.
My old '50 was the only split-top Shoebox chop that I know of (though quite a bit different from yours...5" at the B-pillar, rearward taper, laid down back glass). But I'm quite sure I've never seen one that was also stretched!

What are your design plans for the rest of the car?
@PasoJohn shot the kool pics. Wouldn't it be kool if we started to see this style of flames on more Kustoms and Hot Rods. This truck is just too kool!
...and a nod!

Very Kool, I love this shot!!
This vintage Kustom was originally used as a tow vehicle for a drag car.
