    Looks nicely done.

    That does look pretty good.
    Is it an actual custom, or one of those bolt on kits?

      I'd say it's a custom.

          Whoo I just saw the link, missed it the first time, that is really nice, and no doubt a one off custom.
          Really like the rear window treatment.
          Nice car.

            No offense but I like that a lot better then bolting the front end on an El Camino.

              I know Dick will scold me but, I'd like to see it with an external sun visor and ruby paint, rather than blue. But very nicely done!

                A visor would be just right. I'll let you have the ruby paint where the blue is, but I insist on keeping the cream two tone. .

                IMHO, it needs some different wheels. Maybe cream colored steelies with small hub caps?

                  agreed!

                    I like it. Nice stance, steelies would look good, Studebaker Side mirrors.
                    New purchase for you Dick? make a few mods and then resell? Roast the tires then put new ones on!

                    I know the air vents serve a purpose, but I would have considered filling them in/deleting them. No description of AC, so probably the reason they stayed.

                      I agree on the wheels. Except for that and no bumper, it looks like Studebaker could have made it. I bet the '51 Coupe Express would have sold well.

                        WOW !!! Beautiful !
                        Yes to the rear window treatment.
                        Yes to the steelies and small hubcaps.
                        I think it could have used just a little LESS loft on the roof.

                          I really like it overall but I think the roof looks a little out of proportion. It appears they have shortened the doors (which are from a 2 door). If the doors and resulting cab were longer I think it would look better to my eye. Beauty IS in the EYE of the beholder, right?
