Ok Bet You Dont Know What Kind Of Car This Is

OK GUYS,,,, GUESS YOUR BEST TO TRY TO FIGURE OUT WHAT KIND OF CAR THIS THING STARTED OUT TO BE WHEN IT WAS NEW? HERE IS A HINT, IT WAS A 50'S DROP TOP CAR. IT HAS BEEN COMPLETELY MODIFIED FROM THE ORIGINAL.....DONT BE MAD AT ME I DIDNT BUILD THIS UGLY THING MY FATHER BOUGHT IT A LONG TIME AGO...SOME GUY IN THE LATE 70'S PUT IT TOGETHER AND IT HAS BEEN THAT WAY EVER SENSE.. ITS KINDA NEAT BUT TRUST ME ITS UGLY!!!! 1 MORE HINT IF IT WAS BACK TO THE ORIGINAL BODY STYLE IT WOULD BE WORTH BIG BUCKS. SO GO AHEAD AND GUESS YOUR BEST AND ILL TELL YOU WHAT THE YEAR, MAKE, AND MODEL IT WAS WHEN IT WAS NEW.. I WOULD POST A LARGER PIC OF THE CAR HERE BUT I JUST HAVEN'T BEEN ABLE TO FIGURE THAT OUT YET. THANKS FOR LOOKING AND GOOD LUCK TRYING TO FIGURE OUT WHAT THE HECK THIS THING IS........

I can't get the photos to enlarge for me but my guess is that It started out as 58 Chev or Pontiac convertable.
The funny thing is that that car probably won a trunk full of trophies in it's heyday. It is probably a midwest or east coast show car from the early 60's

Bet you don't know what kind of car this is

Here's a wild guess from Australia, 58 Chevy.
Can any body tell me how to contact a member to give tips/send pics.
I want to send some pics to Neophyte in South Africa about his GMC to help him with engine set up/ steering clearance. I have the same project going.
I am a newby to this and technologicaly challenged.

Doc here,

Click on his name Icon on any post from him, you'll get a dropdown menu..

TRY Send So and So an Email..If you get a screen that Say's The member has requested not to receive Email, Then Back it up and on the same drop down menu, click on Send So and So a Private Message, Send him your request for his email, and send him yours..

That simple..

Doc

You Have the right to remain in lower case...Any Lower case text may be used against you in a court of law..

You have the right to have a Computer Tech present during any lower case text..If you cannot afford one, one will be appointed to you at max charge by Hewlett Packard..

Should you choose to post in lower case, You may choose to stop posting at anytime, until your Tech Support is present..

Do you understand these rights as I have explained to you?

And keeping this in mind...Do you wish to Lower Case Post now?

Looks like a mutilated '57 Chevy Bel Air convert with some '59 or so Lincoln parts hacked on to it to me. The windhield, top and the top of the 1/4 panel just behind the door tell me it's a '57 and that's definitely a Lincoln front bumper but I'm not 100% on the year.

Doors and windshield say 55-57..................GM.

I'm saying 56 Chevy, just so I can win the prize all on my own. There is a prize, right?

Say one of those Tri-Fives in the yard.....................
