^^^ my kind of body work tool - I can make anything fit
Jack Williams chopping Cort Elliot's Chevy...with a hand saw!
HRM did a feature in the Sixties, with a byline that read, "Old-timers avowed the bodywork on Cort Elliot's Chevy to be the best ever."
Where to begin?
This '64 Elky was Harry Bradley's own daily, and served as the basis for the "Custom Fleetside", one of the 16 original offerings in Mattel's "Hot Wheels" inaugural collection! (Behind it is Bradley's "La Jolla" Chevy, BTW.) The Bradley-designed, A-Bros.-built "Deora" was another in that first batch. https://www.jalopyjournal.com/?p=9900
Bradley's El Camino also served as proto-type for GM's later swept-side roof.
It later re-debuted as "Blind faith", with Olds Toronado mid-ship 455.
