Ray Ellis' 1934 Ford 5-window coupe of Sydney, New South Wales, Australia. The build was started in 1966, and completed in 1972.
Buddy Alcorn's 1950 Mercury was originally restyled by the Ayala Brothers at Gil's Auto Body Works for an undisclosed owner in 1952. Buddy Alcorn of Dominguez, California acquired the car in 1955 and promptly took it to Barris Kustoms for further enhancements. 1957 marked another pivotal moment for the Merc when Buddy traded it for Dick Jackson's 1957 Ford. Jackson, who ran Advanced Custom Paints in Compton, California, infused new life into the Merc with a two-tone paint scheme, pinstriping, dual spotlights, and Oldsmobile Fiesta hubcaps. However, the Merc's journey was far from over. Dick Jackson ended up selling the Mercury so he could acquire a 1957 Ford Thunderbird. The Merc ended up in a used-car dealer's lot, and it passed through various hands before eventually landing with Bill Hines. In 1972, Hines' son traded the Merc for Ron Jones' 1932 Ford roadster. By this time, the car was in a state of disrepair, and the exterior and interior were in pretty bad shape. Taken in 1972, this photo shows the car on a trailer behind Ron's car.
Tom Kelly's 1969 Chevrolet Corvette of St. Louis, Missouri. Kelly's Corvette was restyled by Dave Puhl at House of Kustoms. Puhl had Harry Bradley design a few proposals that Kelly could choose from. The build was started in August of 1971 and completed in July of 1972.
