    There's probably a few guidelines in what can be driven on the street written due to this great looker but thinking about the front end bouncing up and turning right or left might be dicey to say the least...at least it's a V8...actually there is a 409 hiding behind that 'T' Shell...:eek:

    Anybody know the story?

    This should shed a little light on the details...;)

    Quoted...

    "It is believed to be the only surviving veteran of all seven of the Pebble Beach Road Races from 1950 through the meeting’s demise after the 1956 race."

    :rolleyes:...and yet no pics of it back in the day...:(...maybe there might be some with pics they might share...;)

    :rolleyes:...Here's Your Ticket for having too typical a Hotrod Hoodlum...

    Now Go and Throw a Tracknose on it...We'll tear it up...:D

    Seriously...Thanks to Everyone's input to date and your continuing offerings of the others that have been and what they continue to inspire...

    @onekoolkat1950 have you found any new old vintage warriors looking for a second chance to share?...your stomping grounds had a great influence in this force in the big picture...;)

    I was thinking it looked like a Sucker...:D...So yeah somethings Fishy...:D

    It is true to the theme that some things really don't win a beauty contest...:D

    I think it was actually near dark pink too...

    If I can find a copy of Car Craft Magazine December 1953 for less than $35 I'll let you know what it says!

    Apparently that's a significant issue since it seems to be the first issue as CAR CRAFT. I bet the owner/builder, Harvey Bott, was pretty happy about that.

    Rooting about, as I do, apparently that car is called The San Antonio Rose and @HJ BOTT was on the HAMB in 2009. Apparently he is still alive and active in the art world.

    Here's a couple pix I lifted from @BrandonB 's post in:

    https://www.jalopyjournal.com/forum/threads/this-month-in-car-craft-dec-1953.82922/

    Personally, despite the loach like face, I appreciate this car's craftsmanship and creativity. I enjoy this thread because it brings up a lot of old builds from the early days that did or didn't fit the mold then and seem to blow people's traditional minds today.

    I'm also intimately familiar with the stance and proportioning issues one hits with track/streamliner noses on a hot rod build.
