Barn Find Friday: 49 Olds Custom
Custom? For sure. Pretty? Not so much. According to the ad, it was done some time in the 50's, and from the looks of it, was never finished. It reminds me of a lot of the "Show cars" of the late 50's (and by show, i mean custom car show, not new concept cars) when the more = better mentality was becoming the dominant trend and people were swapping late model quarters, grills and fins, as well as all kinds of accessory junk onto their cars in the name of being wild.
