I'm just going to comment quick- I LOVE this car, its color, its name, pretty much everything about it... and I love seeing photos of it on IG still in action. If you were to put this Kustom in a category... whatever that category is... its the same one that I want my Ranchero to be in when I'm done with it. Inspiration.
Wow-great/tasteful tail light mods, and one of the best headlight mods too. And I love the single spear of trim. The B&W pics are fabulous. The rear 3/4 shot is the money. As was said, a radical kustom with restraint and taste. Not many of those around.
I've always loved customs that have constant flow and perfect symmetry. This car epitomizes that very definition. I have always liked this car. Wish that I could afford it. Bill
that is a great looking car. I have no "he should have done this or I would change that" for it.. saw it at Pleasanton a few years back. didn't know it had history at the time.
I liked it better with it's original metalflake paint.... but it's still a great example of a early '60s custom.
Fantastic! It looks like a 1/1 version of a vintage AMT, 3 in 1 kit.
Tasteful, Tempting, Timeless, good taste will always win out!
Boy Howdy Time flies, I took these photos at the 2009 Portland Roadster show.
I saw the car years ago and it has always been a favorite of mine.
Wouldn't change a thing saw this in a thread the other day...I thought it had just changed hands or perhaps it was a bttt.
Whatever the reason it caught my eye in a good way.
Just a noted observation...again not specifically a cry baby doll but this doll thing is not nessesarily a new thing. Looks a little Betty Boopish and hell if theres gotta be a doll make it a hot one...
I have to believe that was the hula girl with the palm tree, coconut and pond with water in the display Stogy. No cry baby dolls in those days.
Beauty never goes out of style.
The evolution has not been kind......I'm glad its not 48
An understated Radical custom? Is that possible? Let me ponder that.......guess so, it exists and it is Beautiful!
