    The car is still around, if I remember correctly it was at either the the basement Autorama or Sins of Steel show about 10 years ago. There may have been a thread about it at one time.

    He should have used '36 fenders, front and rear, they have more "swoop".

    I’ll have to go though my photos this evening, it’s been a while. From the same website, the Dick Moraniec roadster is sitting in my brother’s garage pretty much the way it was hauled over there from my Dad’s garage.

    Here’s a photo of it at the 1955 Detroit Autorama. AD67DDE6-5670-42C1-840F-FA92B1434E5E.jpeg

    Cool.
    Kinda blurs the line between hot rod and custom.

    Looks like a '51 Mercury rear bumper. That actually fits it quite well. The front, maybe not so much, but I still really like the car. Design risks like this would never be taken today, I feel like.

    A lot of length added to that hood. Wonder if it's on a different chassis?

    Offset hood scoop?

    From the cowl back I dig it.
    From the cowl forward, I’m out.
    But I’d drive it

    I’d probably add some mid/later 30s front fenders.
    Toss the bumpers

    I've shared it several times in the Homogenized Thread for obvious reasons, one of a kind in so many ways but in my opinion a way classy act in Hotrod/Custom and Race

    Always enjoy seeing it...;)

    What a cool car and story. Great pics and the gangster whites are always a favorite of mine.

    I kind of like it, but it doesn't know what it wants to be.

    Kind of like a mullet, although I'm not sure if the hot rod part is the party or the business...

    Still haven’t found any later pictures, but still looking. I recall it was on a trailer, it was before some of these vintage photos of it showed up. Still think it was either at the Billetproof or Sins of Steel show up in Davisburg.

    @Rolleiflex - I agree with the mullet comment. I think if it had cycle fenders or something to tie in the rear it would be better balanced.

    That said, this is a great case of someone building what they want, and what they want alone.

    I like the split windscreen.

    I dig the rear bumper, the way it forms around the fenders. But that front end, only a mother could love.

    To me it's a Hybrid, half Custom, half Hotrod and many times I've heard it said that Hotrods were about going fast 1st, looks second or not a consideration at all...I've always liked it even though some details are considered off...many Hotrods at that time sported in your face bumpers up front but generally with the ends Bobbed...

    This fella wasn't shy about racing this mix of Beauty and Beast...

    I can't wait to see the survivor pics...

    I've searched quite extensively through numerous Billetproof and Sins of Steel coverage to no avail...I hope someone digs them up...
