          Since all that stuff was posted, the owner cut off the top, changed the headlights to Porsche units set on an angle (so it looks cross-eyed), and painted it metallic lime green. It's no longer cool at all...

            and dont forget the fake shotgun style scoop he added. I was really disappointed at the changes as it was such a good lookin ride before.

              photos of said changes or link please....hard to imagine the original builder would have made the noted changes...were the changes made by a new owner? Thanks, Junior.

                I'll see what I can do for pix, Junior - but I'm not wrong, and it's the original builder of the rod.

                  I didn't realize this was the same car. I liked the coupe version better. I wish I had the talent to build one with a Stude V-8.

                    Black or green or topless or whatever, I love it.

                    I read on the HAMB where the reason the top was removed was because his son is driving it to school and he needed to be able to see out of it. Good reason to me.

                      Just thinkin' about that car the other day, wondering what became of it. It's cool. It's cool. It's cool.

                      What must that be like---a kid driving that thing to high school? All I had was a worn out 10 speed bike.

                        I love that car! Prefered it as a coupe though.
                        Hard car to find pictures of.
                        Would love to see pictures taken during the original build.
                        I would love to build one for somebody. Wish it were me, but wife says I already have too many cars and too many projecrts lined up in the barn.
                        My bucket list is too long. Guess I need to look into a bigger bucket.

                          No doubt either version is impressive, however, my vote is hands-down for the coupe version. IMHO, something has been lost in the translation to roadster. What impressed me so much about the original coupe version was that the builder had the vision to build it in the first place..whoda thunk to ever cut, narrow, and chop a bullet-nose into a fenderless hot rod??? I thought the original version was outstanding ...regardless, the builder is indeed a metal wizard. Junior.

                              My first thought was that it must have been the inspiration for the Plymouth "Prowler".
