    I loved that car at the GNRS Customs Then & Now event.

    I really like the Custom Cars that where customized in the early 1940's They are so pure.

    Here are a few photos I took of it.

    Fender skirts would look good if the rear were more elongated ,but as is it would have an armadillo effect.

    I have a 39 and will def put skirts on it. The rear fender cutouts have a weird shape that I personally don't like very much. Gorgeous car anyway!

    I think that car is beautiful, ever since I saw it on the Rodders Journal. Gorgeous color and stance is just right.

    A very nice example of an early custom. The DeSoto bumpers look perfect on this car. Lots of small changes plus the Carson top enhance the '39 design and give it a great look!
