    My buddy Tripple G has been working and working on his 57 Ford Gasser for a while now..... A lot of fab work was done by the very talented Rob Purcell... northwest of Palookaville. Rob radiused the rear wheel sheetmetal...completely did the floors,trunk,etc,etc and ditched the front pan,chopped and sectioned the front bumper and drew it tighter to the car.
    Cleans the whole front end immensely.
    The car is just out of the painters hands and he is getting ready for final assembly.
    Gold.... perfect.
    Some of the pics seem a little dark... but the paint is like dripping honey.
    Car is powered by a BB Ford...

    Very happy For hotroddonnie.

    Thats Al Dixon's car.. He has owned it since 1962..and yes,has a cammer that they bought from "Bob Fords" in Dearborn in the 60's.
    It's an over the top restoration.

    I love 57 Fords and I LOVE gold.

    This car is wicked!

    Will it be lettered up, or just kept clean and simple?

    Either way it's gonna be gorgeous.

    What a sweet car! That's one hell of a paint job!
    Wish that my '64 had a trunk that looked like that.
    Thanks for the pics!
