1952 Chevrolet Bel Air restyled by its owner Glen Richardson with the help of Darrel Brown and W. Scmidt, all from Alberta, Canada. The door handles were shaved and the car was nosed and decked. Four rows of louvers were stamped in the hood, while the deck lid had its corners rounded. The front end featured a set of canted 1958 Chrysler Imperial quad headlights which were clever molded in, shaded in the top and slightly recessed. The stock Chevy grille was molded, as was the center grille bar which featured added teeth. The rear fenders were capped with three 1956 Dodge Royal taillights which were slightly shaded and fit with accessory items for further restyled appearance. Once the bodywork was completed, it was painted Burgundy. Fender skirts, dual spotlights and lakes pipes wrapped up the style.[1]
