    1948 Buick ~ One of a kind

    Restored in 2010 by Dave Crouse, this Buick Streamliner was completed after a two year build, Aluminium body over steel frame chassis.

    enjoy!

    Hmm looks like someone put a lot of work into designing that beautiful rear end then got called in for tea and left the work experience guy to finish the front!

    Re: 1948 Buick ~ One of a kind

    Beautiful.......

    I have seen pics of that taken when first done with some detailed chassis pics.....I loved it then , I'm pretty sure it gets some coverage on the Rik Hoving website...my only criticism with this and other restored Kustoms and Rods , is that they almost get over restored and take on a toy car feel.....

    Not to take anything away from it though.....

    It's not going to appeal to everyone , but I love Cartoon / Comic book moderne designs .....You could imagine the original 40's/50's Batman series using something like that ........The Coachcraft cars are built along these lines too , taking an almost Sports Custom direction which is kinda cool....

    Also , on a side note I wouldn't have been surprised to see an Auto Union or Borgward badge or similar on that the first time I saw it ....I wonder if the builder was influenced by them in this post war era ..... ?

    It's a dictionary definition of compound curves. Such a slippery shape it's almostas if the light slids off it. Shame about the tail lights stuck on the back. I'd be tempted to hide them benind the bumper.
