Looks pretty good. Bonneville inspired?

super clean look. I've seen folks chop these cars to an extreme and ruin them. This one is tastefully done.

yes, I remember that one, but there was some discussion on this forum that it was not an actual Barris Kustom, but only had the glove box door signed by the King himself. If it`s the same custom, wonder where the roof went, and when did the rear wheel lips get radiused?

I believe it was stated in the article that the roof was removable....lift off the one piece top and drive away.

yes, I know that, was just wondering if the auction-car and Barris-built car were the same car I wonder why I`ve never seen the aution car with a photo of the roof installed. cheers, junior

Kustomrama has several pictures of custom Studebakers. Some are really nice.
