    Here's my take: 1950 Pontiac grille in front and 1954 Mercury taillights.
    And a visitor known to like showgirls...

  5. Sorry that photo is a bit rough, but here´s what you could end up with if you want the proportions of the earlier 'bird. A lot of work though - moved the front wheels forwards, shortened the wheelbase and then shortened the tail too, then you can start remaking the roof.

  7. Here's one I'd like to see... (apologies, I stole the pic off the 'Kustoms' thread)


    Can somebody 'lower' the roof? Not chop it, but drop the entire greenhouse down on the body by about 2", the amount of the vertical dogleg coming off the vent window line. AND 'pancake' the roof, removing the 'crown', making the roof extend back level from the windshield header. This will require recontouring the hood too....

    I figure this will effectively lower the top by about 3 1/2" overall.

    Hmm... My first ever post on here was "disappeared" by an Admin as if it never existed...

    Are there any guidelines I should be aware of before posting on this thread? I feel like I probably committed some sort of JalopyJournal faux pas, but I don't have any sort of PM from an Admin so I'm not sure what it was....

    Adam I think your post was a 79? Corvette and we here are 64 and older cars. Sorry but you need a different forum or just do not mention your car and enjoy this great sight! Gary
  10. James D and Themoose--- Thanks really like the shortened T Bird look and the change in stance and color of my son's 59.
    The reason to ask for the 2 seater version is a question was asked on the 332-428 FEForum and I commented I'd ask in this thread. HAMB was given full credit for your efforts.
    Thanks again >>> Movin/on

  13. Here´s the ghosted view of the car/s if any of your guys want to try and figure out where to cut. The roof is anything but stock btw.

    I really like the baby bird '59 concept. Seeing it in those proportions, I can really see the design progression between the '57 and 58-60. I always used to think that the 58-60 Thunderbird was a total departure from the '57 but seeing it in 2 seater form, they do share quite a few styling cues.

    ^^^^^^ WOW! I like that!!
  18. You can certainly see that the starting point was the same, but that the origins of the design didn't really survive the transition to a four seater car.

  20. An easy one, for some of you, this mac pc makes me want to throw it across the street with these photos, I can't even get the photos stored on it to come up in a separate screen !
    Anyway can some one shrink the first two photos (t-bucket/bike on left and truck on right harleyTb.jpg truckmeat.jpg badmoonnight.jpg ) and place them in the left/right upper corners of the last photo (white Henry J) so I can have all 3 photos in one please and thank you
  21. Thanks man, now I have all my vehicles in one photo

    Looking at the first photo, I'd like to see a version of the Hudson as a delivery, the van overlapping in the background was too tempting

    I was tempted to do a delivery with the stepdown Hudson myself. 00N0N_lfnnHiYlVJl_600x450.jpg s-l1600p.jpg
