  • Whose Car is This?


    After doing just three cars I have a few rules for keeping projects on track. Do a little every day, join a support group that can provide encouragement and support, be considerate of your family and neighbors and have a clear goal. There are other rules, but these are important for me. I'm in the goal formulation stage for the wreck of a 55 I dragged into the garage where my wifes car goes (so much for rule 3) and I'm trying to get a vision of where I want to go. After doing three trailer queens, I'm ready to make something to drive. I've looked at a lot of cars and like this one. Does anyone know whose this is and where I can get more pictures of it or a 53 or 54 coupe similar to it?
    Thanks
    Bill

        I sold that car a couple of months ago to a gentleman in British Columbia. I think it brought $6k. It was a 6 cylinder stick OD. Here's some more pictures of it...

                Although the cutting and welding has started, I'm still in the goal setting stage of my 5X coupe. My wife saw this coupe picture and liked it. IMO, these look a bit better in the pastels, but I like this red and white two tone. Any ideas on where to find more pictures of this one?
                Thanks

                  From the time I first saw it in 1953 I have been enamored by the '53 Coupe in singletone Manchester Maroon. When I saw this one on a used car lot in April, 1976 I had to have it. Were it not solid Maroon, I probably would not have made the purchase. It's a Regal model, in a regal color.

                  I took this picture about 1983 or '84, when it was still my daily driver. Today, it is nearing its rebirth, after sitting idle for over twenty years.

                        Here's a picture of mine soaking wet. It's the only way to make it shiny.
