    I love a custom thats managed to live a full life but I think its those headlights that dont sit well with me.
    That 56 from Germany is pretty sweet though. Sitting just right.

    That's the only 49-56 ish Ford (I think? Lol The roof says "Victoria" to me) that I like. Who did that car? Was/Is it a local car? That's the kind of look I see in my mind when I think mild kustom. Who ever did it took a car I'm not crazy about and made it cool. It's not over done. I think that's the key. Knowing when to stop.

  5. It's a 52-54, and I would guess it's not a '52. It's also a "glass top" Skyliner!
     
  6. Nah just one I like too. My friend did just did this exact car minus the Pontiac trim. He had it as Sins...now trying to figure out hydrolic clutch issue

    Butch (Bund?) of Butch's Rod Shop built one of the sweetest glass tops ever, but pics are hard to find.
    In addition to a '52 Packard grille, he used modified Packard bumpers, front and rear, which suited the car perfectly.

    This Chevy is absolutely perfect! Larry Watson could not have done better!
    LOVE the '61 Dodge 'caps!

    Some old Lee diamond lenses might be fun, for when you're feeling wild! :D
    (A station wagon rear bumper would be even "perfecter". )

    So sporty, so factory in appearance (the paint job and trim are spectacular!), but the T-Bird hoodscoop leaves no doubt. Custom!

    I have a glasstop roof complete that I had planned to use in one of my sedans, such a cool thing.
     
  16. Reminds me of one of Miles Masa's creations. Very cool.

    Not sure yet, was originally bought to put in my '53 from high school during a total rebuild, but now I think I want to just fix what that car needs and leave it the way it was when I was a teenager. Not that it was a super long time ago, but I read about guys who kept their first car and never changed it and I think I want to adopt that policy.

    My '52 on the other hand would also take the glasstop roof and would look great but the car already has finished paint and interior and I don't know if I want to undo that for the swap. I could easily change my mind on that though.
