This one, by @CrcooperPhotography, is coming together nicely, Down Under.
'56 rear bumper is next.
The rear tail light area still needs a hell alot of work. Finally after many years of primer patches, i finally had the yellow color matched into aerosol cans. Makes a huge difference, especially for the moral of the bloody thing!
Some rust repairs next (This thing came from IL.....) and final fitment of the Door Solenoids. Jimmy White did a really great step by step install which we're using as a guide.
Then i'll get on to the 55' rear bar, modified bumper irons and modified rear stonetray. Has anyone on here done the 55 chev rear bar swap before? If so, i would love to see the bumper irons!
Fender skirts will be extended and fitted....at some stage!
Two great looking cars , one of the only 4 doors I've ever liked and a super clean 53'. I want to hate the way the pin stripe just falls off the front ,but it's interesting,I like it.
The picture is definitely from in front of his shop.
Found this on another HAMB thread.
Here's a clean '55 Studebaker I've never seen before.
Wow on the green Merc above. Sweeeeet
I wonder if the drop in the middle of the door is open on the side you can't see.
Love me a Starliner....
How about the tiny steering wheel?
(Sure hope it has power assist! )
Good eye Bill, it`s Don Bunch`s from Tennessee? He was in Indy`s CCR this year with it. He has a nice stable of cool customs.
Nice lil' '58 lemon sucker.
Von Dutch work?
