        One of the nicer conversions I've seen. Good save on parts that were headed for oblivion.

            Great execution of an idea. I would not have taken so much out of the length. Perhaps if it was sectioned a couple if inches it wouldn't be so "stubby"

              I like it! The last profile picture makes me think of exaggerated air brush drawings sometime seen on T-shirts.

                  Yes, it does look like a George Trosley drawing! Gotta be a hard ride over any kind of rough road, though - or even the joints in a concrete Interstate.

                    Since we have a removable roof, our '53 custom might be similar to what you were hoping for.

                        A 50 would look better, becouse of a longer front fender.
