With Paddy bringing us lots of awesome European Ford content, I'd thought I'd chime in with a bit of Blue Oval action from here in the good old USA.
Then again, the level of customization on this car might drive the Ford purists mad!
I spotted this car last month at the Mooneyes Irwindale show. I was about to head home when I saw this sled parked just outside the main show. The first thing that caught my eye was the color – a unique blend of olive and gold semi-gloss. Even with the amount of customization, you can still tell that the car started out as a Ford – a '62 Galaxie to be exact.
Most likely the car started out as a hard top or sedan before being heavily chopped and then cut into a convertible. The thing that struck me the most were the doors, or lack thereof. While many are content with simply shaving the handles, the builder of this car has gone one step further.
I couldn't see a top mechanism of any sort, so it's fair to say this is a sunny weather cruiser. Not a big problem here in Southern California…
Love that shifter!
I'd think with a stance this low, the car would be on bags but I can't be sure. Also, those pipes are rad.
Naturally, the wheels are Astro Supreme style, with whitewalls.
So, who wants to go for a cruise?
Looks sweet, makes me want to taste it )
Sign me up man!!
amazing and beautiful.
OH-MY-GOD!! It´s so smooth.. I love it.. Mike give to us a desktop please.
F PURISTS.. THIS IS SUPERBLY CLEAN, IF I HAD THREE THUMBS THEYD ALL BE UP
I have no other words for this other than epic.
I've never seen anything so sick.
I like it, but how the heck do you get in and out of it?
Man this car is so smooth! Never seen shaved doors before. Never thought it could be pulled of so well.
Awesome, but I doubt any purist would argue over this car. Very well done and executed. I would be concerned with scratches getting into and out of the car.
To stupid for words! Realy would like to see someone enter that thing without scratching the matt pain job!
Those are called "Bellflower pipes"...a key period element of any early 60's custom
great part about it is that besides the body work it's a super simple and cheap car
this car is rad
1st timer for me to see this... So that's why it is a convertible cuz it got no doors... Haha!
awesome. should come under smooth in the dictionary!
I think I just fell in love! That is a beauty
Not only does it look smooth as hell, welding up the doors cures a lot of the body flex issues that came with removing the top. Smooth AND smart.
Geting in without scratching is a no brainer >> put something on top of or hop in like little kids in arcade games... Its baged 4th picture look at the left corner seems like Suspension switches. Dont dig the pipes
needs something to break up the side, maybe a swage line? there's just too much blank space without the doors...
still awesome though!
Very clean !
best part about it is helping girls with miniskirts get in it.
Strangely, this reminded me of Crazy Taxi.
It`s just amazing... Im sure soo much people want it like a desktop....
Haha I thought I was the only one who was reminded of Crazy Taxi.
looks amazing... love the look with no doors!!
to the person that mentioned about it being stupid ? Im sorry but when have custom hot-rods been sensible ? they are mostly Mad and thats the whole fun in owning / building one ? surely ?
