    This '48 Chevy coupe was built by a guy named "the Cat" from Ohio.
    He built is after he missed out on an action on the original Barris build Chevy custom for the movy High school confidential.
    The first time I saw this car was in a black and white photo on a show report in a R&C magazine.
    I fell in love with the lines of this car. the perfect proportions of the chopped top with its rear side windows closed. I never dreamed I would ever see this car in person (I'am from Amterdam the Netherlands). But in the 90's I visited a friend of mine in Tennessee and while we where driving around I noticed this good looking 46-48 custom parked next to a building, ou tof the corner of my eye. We turned the car to check the custom out and found it to be this '48 Chevy I had seen in R&C magazine. I freaked out. WOW. and it got even better. It turned out there was the First annual KOA Tenn custom show that same weekend.. so we got to see quite a bit of cool custom cars... but this for sure was my favorite of the weekend.

    '46 Chevy grille much smoother than the original 48 Unit

    The car was going to be repainted because of the color mismatch on the doors.

    wierd, but those pipes out the hood sides. . . that i normally associate with pimped-out 70's excaliburs. . . look pretty cool on this car. Anymore info on it?

    Also, while I am asking questions into the void. . .

    I remember a car posted on here, I think on a Paso thread, that had a sculpted dashboard without a single gauge in it. . . did I dream that? Anyone know that car or have photos?

    i stole that pic from another site. that was the only one and it had no info. i must admit too. it does look pretty cool with them. i might have different opinion about it with a different camera angle.

    oh and thanks everyone for NOT posting "scrape" . . it's a pretty incredible car but looses all of it's deco character by being overly modernized. . here's one with a nice balance

    Never seen a Duesenberg SJ? I think that is the inspiration here.

    The Duesenberg was the mightiest American car on the road in the thirties.
    The "S" stood for supercharged and the external identification was the four pipes coming out of the passenger side hood. That look was so popular that Duesenberg also sold the pipes as on option on the unsupercharged J model.

    Duesenbergs were built as engine and chassis only (like many high-end cars of their day) and every one was custom-bodied by coachbuilders.

    Here is a Weymann-bodied Fishtail Speedster SJ.
