Great custom. Subtle, yet extensive. The best customs are ones that look like something the factory should have done. That is what this one is.

that is a super nice replica of one of George Cerney' early customs.Cerney was not as well known as the the Barris brothers and their contemporaries, but was a superb metal man.

Thats right.

Actually it started out as a Barris Bros. project, but the owner was not pleased off the speed of the building progres, so he turned it over to Mr. Cerney´s shop and he then finished it of. Actually Sam Barris takes credit for the roof chop. But the roof was not chopped when it left Barris´ (!)

Correct. Sam Barris chopped the top before Buster Litton owned the car. Cerny finished the rest of the car.
