I have always had good practical cruisers that I could climb in and take on vacation to Daytona if that is what I wanted to do. With that said, I would like to build another mild 50’s custom:
49-51 Ford convertible
49-56 Mercury convertible or hardtop (54 would be perfect)
54 Chevy hardtop or convertible
Of course I would like to find a car in the 2500 dollar range.
Since I like to do the metal work I don't mind a car with some rust but will try to find a complete car that has trim and dash with it. Trying to find a car piece at a time will kill you now days.
John I have found a 53 or 54 Ford Victoria HT with front half of roof Glass, I will post pictures
