  • Custom Bulletnose on eBay - odd detail

    Did anyone get a load of the rear fenders on this thing?
    They are hinged to flip up and down!
    (and yes, the bodywork is in horrible shape)

    Actually not a bad idea for changing flat monster wide tires.

      I'll give that one credit for being unique. A lot better than the one last week that was a bulletnose front on an El camino or vise versa

        That thing is a perfect example of a person who was raised on Hot Wheels building a car to impress his buddies.
        How about the yellow "48" with the 50 front end that the guy says was Studebakler's first "small block V-8? He must be quoting another ad that was put up a few days back. A Studebaker V-8 may be small displacement, but small block? Anyway, I like the yellow one better.

          It's a pretty cool rod, actually, and I give the seller full marks for a well-written description that does not not attempt to gloss over the numerous defects.

            Wow. With welded in skirts I guess there would be almost no other way to get at the wheels. I sure don't remember seeing it done this way before.
            On my own tubbed Stude (no skirts) I have to jack it a mile in the air and unhook the rear shackles [:0] just to change a tire. Even if I had thought of doing it this way..... nope. Would not hinge my quarters.

              Lets all say it together now..."Thats not the way I would have done it..." Obviously, this owner put a lot of time and money into his car. The market will determine whether he will be rewarded for it. Raymond Loewy would probably approve of the rear fenders, because they "make it look like zee aeroplane."
