    Widening fenders instead of narrowing the rear? Seems like a lot more work. Studes are kind of narrow, so could look neat I guess, but would require way more body talent than I have.

      It seems odd to me too. Maybe it's just the angle of the picture, but the fenders look squared off.
      I was wondering if that car started out as a convertible. I am not familiar with the convertible structure, but the rear doesn't look right to my eye. ??

        Lots of work put into this project. I personally would have left the '52 front end on the car, but then it is not my car. Oh, yes I would drive it far and wide if it were mine just as it is now.

          Widening the rear fenders sure was a backwards step. That destroyed the good looks of the original design. I'm sure the car never started as a convertible, and someone will need to come up with a top for it. No matter how nice the weather starts out, you can be sure to get caught in the rain at some time.

            Looks to me like another abandoned project that the person who started it can't figure out how to make it work.

            Just what I see.

              It looks to me like it may have started life as a hardtop as the rear package shelf area looks a lot like my '52 hardtop.

                "Had the rear fenders widened" and that pretty much ruined the look of the car. It looked better sitting on the trailer before he touched it.

                  $12,000 dollars and it doesn't even run. How much more before its a roller? You'd have $20K in it just to make it run and drive. Then you have to upholster it. And Paint it. Wheels. Tires. Brakes. Hoses, etc. etc. A nightmare for the next guy at 12K buy in.

                    So true. Those wide fenders look like something from a carnival ride.
