    Jack Cooper's beautiful '36 was shown at the first Detroit Autorama (1951), and is still around today!

    The Chrisman's built some of the best looking cars ever on the track.
    Art Chrisman's driver '36 Sedan clocked nearly 110 MPH, with '37 mill.

    This one popped back up. Sure recalls Valley Customs.

    If I saw this as a fresh build at a show today, I'd have never thought it was an authentic '50s-style build! That grille is something else! Screenshot_20190223-195908.jpeg

    I really like that one above. I like the 55 trim and Chevy grille, pretty color too.

    '54 dash and cut-down accessory wheel are a nice touch...

    [​IMG][/QUOTE]This is a recreation of a Barris built car. That`s like the interior in the original one.

    I keep coming back to this. Had to save this image onto my computer. It looks oddly good without the headlight bezels, I wonder if that was an intentional change, like a '54 Lincoln? Or if they're just off in the pic. It works though. The car's not even real low either.
