Carson Top '50 Olds

49 posts in this topic

Posted · Report post

The top is from a 50 Ford.

Hood has been rounded and the grill sunk.

Almost went with the dual headlites from the Ford.

Engine is in the drink..I didn't like the pearl green..

Front grill lip is a work in progress..

Chassis is done..still tweaking the top.

This is where I'm at..white primer on the body and red oxide primer on the top.

That picture with the red top side view makes it look like a Dodge Wayfarer. Sharp looking car you have there...

Daaaaaaaaaamn. With all this Olds build ups, you guys are going to make me put the deuces aside for little. I am seriously thinking getting one of these. It looks absolutely stunning with the carson top.

It does have a Wayfarer look to it.

Very nice execution.

This build is just too cool. Love the dual headlights and Carson top. That engine is inspiring! After seeing all these killer Olds builds, I had to pull the trigger and order one myself!
