    Mo, Thanks for the Info, enjoyed reading the history of car and auction, I would have paid $11,100. just to have such a unique car, assuming that it went through in pretty good shape, I would not spend the money needed if paint/interior and all the other problems that come with years of poor storage. (a complete redo would kill the deal for me) what a conversation piece it is. It's not really my cup of tea, but I have always enjoyed looking at the different/unique stuff, the diversity of Kustoms is what makes them IMO

    truly rare 1962 version.jpg 'Mo, thanks for the kustomrama link. Lot's of great stuff on there. Too much to look at and remember all the details. I have never seen the version shown in 1962. Less radical ... and I really like it.

    I'm with you, 54delray. "Truly Rare" was Soo-weet, before the Sho-Biz bug bit so hard.

    My wife knows if she hears me exclaim "oh baby!" or "son of a b*tch!" that it's a car I'm looking at.

    No info with Pic, my guess by fenders/hood shape/trunk, GM late 30's maybe into 40's. Mo where are you ? somehow you seem to have the answers when this question is asked.

    1940 LaSalle "The Black Pearl"
    Black-Pearl-front.jpg
    From the auction listing: https://classicauctionnews.com/2019...l-a-stunning-1940-lasalle-kustom-convertible/
    Best known as “The Black Pearl”, this stunning 1940 LaSalle-based Kustom honors the Harry Westergard tradition with a modern twist. Jim Bailie of Windsor’s Metalshapers extensively reworked the original coupe body, with every body panel subtly customized in a traditional fashion. A deep black PPG exterior finish, Coker wide whitewall tires and steel wheels with ’54 Cadillac hubcaps complete the smooth and tasteful exterior.
    The very luxurious ultra leather interior features 8-way power seats, a custom console, a wrap-around rear seat, and custom wooden inserts. Amenities include A/C, power windows, remote doors, a backup camera, and Dakota digital gauges.
    The completely updated drivetrain consists of a 300-hp, fuel injected Cadillac Northstar V-8 engine backed by a GM THM 700R4 four-speed overdrive automatic. Underpinnings include a Camaro front subframe and suspension with disc brakes, as well as a 3.73:1 GM rear axle.
