Not the clearest picture in the world but this should give you some idea...
Thanks for the work, but I don't think he will go for the Performance Vibe, any other ideas greatly appreciated!
You are right it was a cell phone photo. Thanks for the help
I had to go with some taller tires...
Nothing's better than a good late 60s lowrider

Thanks Ned that looks great, I’m on the fence about lowering it anymore than it is as our roads aren’t great and my stuff does see gravel once in a while. It needs tires as well, the ones that are on it are rollers, the problem is finding 14” tires in many sizes!

Thanx Themoose, that makes it driveable
If you want to accept this "Impossible Mission" it would be cool to see this custom early 50s Chevy sedan delivery with the tarp removed!
Respectfully, Why isn't somebody finishing that thing up??
The concept, the vision, and the proportions look amazing!!
And... somebody had the balls to cut up a Corvette!!
Queue up "Mission Impossible" theme... Dum Dum, Dum, De Da Da, Dum Dum
Thank you, if it isn't too much to ask, would you please chop it 3 or 4"?
Here you go.
If you've ever been in the back of one of these beasts, it's like looking down a long, dark train tunnel. And if it's chopped, that goes double!
And yet another version...I thought I'd have some fun playing around with this one
^^^^ THATS what I'm talking about! Well done!
Nice job @Rot 'n Kustom and @themoose! It even has your longer doors @RMONTY
themoose, You nailed it, bolted it, welded it, AWESOME !!!!!!
Man somebody HAS to get that thing finished!
That 50 is certainly interesting and right up the alley of my fascination with one of a kind builds. Would love to know more about the actual design and build. Would also like to hear that is has been rescued and worked on again.
Who wants to take a stab at this? I was thinking Banger Motor, lowered with reverse eyes springs, dropped axle (2/3 inches) the same lowering at the rear, blackwalls and black wires, and a subtle color.

This is so cool! Old6rodder recommended I ask for a little inspiration here for my ‘61 Lancer Gasser/AWB project. We’ve got the front frame rails done, but I would like to move the front wheel well forward about 6” before we weld in the spring perches.
For round #2, I would like to go full AWB and move the rear axle up about a foot.
I’ve got a Valiant parts car to provide most of the needed panel replacement pieces.
Would’ja, could’ja purdy please see what you can do with this pic and push those wheels up? I plan to keep the original patina, but a white or silver roof might be a nice touch.
Here’s kinda sorta the idea. Just sitting higher up in front.
Sorry I don’t agree, unless your a C-1 aficionado they were considered a POS by most. Hard to drive, slow, terrible ride, etc. It could have been a real basket case when the guy started. I would like to see it don right too..spend $50k to have $25k car....
I've got the perfect (maybe not perfect, but it's available to be cut up some more!) body to donate for the cause to recreate what Mr. Moose envisioned!
I just need some help getting it done! Im still a noob to this sheet metal work!
