1957 ford bubble top custom

Recommended Posts

Here’s the newest issue of Amt ‘57 ford , wanting to build a early 60’s Custom Show Car I thought I would combine the ‘57 ford with The Starbird Predicta Show Car , after much body work I topped The car with a pearl white base then mixed up a little candy gold and fogged It , Adding a 2K clear coat,  adding parts here and there from the parts box it’s done , build took about 3 weeks on and off to complete, hope you like !!

Hi Gary!

Gotta love it! It is perfectly in tune with the show cars of the era. The interior is world class. Bravo!

Motorama, here we come...

These 50's creations were something else! Nice work on the paint, very sharp looking build.

Now that's a Kustom. With all the body and paint work plus the interior and then knock it out in 3 weeks. Beautiful looking build with all the right touches.

Fantastic looking custom. Looks like it could have been in a 60's sci fi movie about the future.

Hope you like it? Whats not to like! Very tastefully done. But how would it be steered?

Has a center stick in the middle of the seats that would steer the front wheels, believe it or not that was a real feature in a few of starbirds cars back in the 60’s .

That's Kool, Even though it is radical, the design is very smooth and balanced!

Another stunning creation from you, I'm speechless!

Watch out for time cops, Gary! Because I think George Jetson wants to have back his hover car! 😄
