I'm hopefully looking to land myself a '53 Velox after pay day and was wondering if anyone has any photos of the E series Vauxhalls made into customs ie 2 doored, chopped, or even just lowered nicely or kinda mild. I have seen one or two on google and I'm just looking for inspiration
Thanks, Matt

Hi Matt. Look up OLY 52 probably the best looking Kustom E series ever built. Was the car that got me into Kustoms. Are you getting the Velox from Mrquickwhip?? I seriously thought about that one myself & building a replica of OLY 52.
Rockabillybilly on this site had one called " Earth angel" i think.
Good luck in whatever you do & do a build thread.

Thanks hurnleft! There's some great pictures there. Does anyone know if the rear doors were just welded up or that the fronts were extended and the B pillars moved on OLY 52

Wow thats cool Al! I love the lines and the fact it has a decent sized rear window. That is the only thing about OLY 52 that i dont like. The rear window looks like a letter box. And thanks for the info lee!
