  1. Well son of a gun, this thing is kind of amazing. I really enjoyed the 1960s-1970s custom era. The annual traveling "Autorama" show was a big deal. I see various postings about it on message boards, but it seems like no one has been able to come up with good photos of it when it was in its prime. That Hot Rod magazine article seems to show a different phase of this one's life. Those naked chassis shots show the huge amount of effort that went into this originally. I wonder if the current seller bought it to try to bring it back.

  2. The original pics look really interesting, the current incarnation seems much less cohesive.
