I think the Herb Ogden Buick is at the very top of the Classy Custom ladder.
this is class to me..
and King Of The Roost (to me at least ) (sure wish I could post big pics!)
Kool story, and your mate's car is beautiful.
Great Post. I love all the kool Kustoms. Here is my Merc.
This needs brought back up. Especially because I now have a '48 Mercury coupe.
Thanks to all who have contributed to this thread. It is and always has been my favorite.
Are all the Classy Kustoms gone???
Come on guys!
Cant belive I missed this thread.
Heres one coming soon near you...
Let me thro mine in hear One of kool chops by Joe Sulpy in Ledgewood N.J
To me that is a classy kustom.
long way from finished but heres my 53
Palle Johansen's 1947 Cadillac Convertible - work in progress - definitly belongs on this thread.
David Martinez is responsible for cutting the windshield, extending the cat walk and creating the Gaylord style padded top.
This car will develop into a more full custom as it could have been built in 1948, but even now it is already a Classy Kustom.

(The windshield stainless is still missing in this photo)
Palle's caddy is just plain awesome. flows beautifully.
Palle's Caddy is looking killer can't wait to see this one progress.
Rik, I think it looks great as it is. What additional changes is Palle planning for it?
I'll let the pics do the talking!
Man there are some nice cars on this thread, but I gotta believe the 55 Cadillac with the classiest lines and a true driver from all aspects has to be Roger Jetters kustom. Roger and his brother Dan has put a lot of time and energy into this one to get it right.
And Rog looks lovely standing next to it! Sorry Roger, just couldn't pass it up.
Thanx John, appreciate the thot.
Mick, you only wish I looked that good...hell, I only wish I looked that good. Were that I, I'd prolly be wealthy by now...alas, it's not me...and I'm not even close to wealthy...!!!
This would have to be more new all time favourite kustom right at this very moment. Need more photos of it. X2 giving an offer as well to the owner.
I hope I belong?!?!?!?!?! Hahaha I was shootin' for classy the entire build!
here's my 55 cadillac
there it is in yellow when it was dumped off to me.
My buddy Flop chopped the roof.
We shaved the drip rails and changed the side vent to an angled actual vent opening.
We also changed the rear window.
Next is to do a removable hardtop then the customizing is done.
And prep the body for shiny paint.
Love this thread. Some tasty customs here.
yup you do !Real clean and Classy ride !
In my opinion there is a certain look to be a Classy Kuston most of the pic's posted have that look not over done just right clean classy lines ......
WOW! I love this car, its so clean & reserved..... Looks perfect, Thanks Rik
I think I kept it classy...
