Really dig that black Edsel!
I agree. I can think of nothing that would further improve it.
99% Stock, 100% Kool!
It sold on the HAMB a few years back. https://www.jalopyjournal.com/forum...nger-2-door-mild-kustom-sell-or-trade.944233/

Okay, so bring me up to speed or maybe convince me of what I'm building for myself. I am an F-100 die hard. I bought my first 55 in in 1965 for $50.oo as a Work Horse. I've owned and built many for both myself and customers over the years. I just like them. I'm currently doing another one for myself and again it's just going to be a work Horse but a Dang nice one. It will probably be the last one I build. Personally I just consider it a Truck and not much more. I am however doing it my way with plenty of not so noticeable little changes. It will ware a Stock Custom Cab 53 Grill. Stock taillights. Factory stock tailgate. Stock side mirrors, vent windows and door handles. Factory bench seat and gauges. It will ware early generation American 5 spokes and black wall tires however a nice low stance but not by any means a Ground hugger and for sure NO Air Ride! It will also have a trailer hitch being it is for work. The big thing is it is Chopped, not a heavy one but from my point of view just enough. It was simply done so I liked the look better, that was all. I call it an adjustment. I don't even remember how much I removed.
So the question I have based on prior statements "Is this a Full Custom?" I don't think so.
Check the "Pontiac-esque" hood waterfall.
You know that the waterfall is stock on a '41 pickup, right?
Watson was a master.....imagine this car rolling down the street...quite the statement piece
I also realize that the truck I originally posted (gold '41) is a bit too "tweaked" to qualify for this thread, and has been edited out. (I just thought it made a nice comparison shot.)

I really like this 50 2 door but with stock Door handles, peep mirrors, Sun visor and hood ornament it makes the Frenched headlight treatment look out of place even with the painted on Buick side trim. I think the SS factory trim rings would have been right at home.
Yep, a four door too!
(Don't miss the extended, flared skirts.)
Very few mods. Very BIG impact!
That speaks mild Kustom all day long. Wow!
