This week at Shoes place a 54 Ford Vicky

I find myself working on a 54 Ford Vicky.I am intsalling 50 Olds fender ends and headamps in it.I tell you I have the utmost respect for the Alexander brothers and other kustomizers from the day. I am using modern tools and still struggle at times.Its hard to believe that the kustoms of yesteryear looked and turned out the way they did.Just with the tools and paints that were available at the time....Hope to have her tig welded up and metal finished by the end of the week so it can at least be driven to the Beatersville Show in Louisville this weekend.
Then will come the lower grille treatment and rounding of the hood corners.With finally finishing the car out with a one piece front end.

Heres the look my young 17 yearold customer wants thanks to the original Victorian by The Alexander Brothers.....

The Vlasic destroyer II

My friend Heath had been looking for a cheap daily rider since selling his Thruxton.After trolling craigslist he came up with this slightly neglected sporty on the cheap.A deal was made and the tear down started right after the ride home.He brought me the tins after reworking the rear fender.I pulled the dents and preped her for paint.He told me his colors but let me do what I wanted with the tins.At first I was not sure bout his choice of colors but now I think it works well.Silver base,silver flake green and gold candies.Always glad to help out when called up on...Looks good Heath for a one week extreme makeover.
