Frank DeRosa is a legendary West Coast customizer.


Frank started customizing cars in 1943, while working for Bob Dughi.


In 1949 he opened up his own shop. At the time he was restyling a 1936 Ford that he had totaled. The car, known as the Joker Car, was 49 inches high, and it consisted of Lincoln, Kaiser, Chevrolet and Ford parts. Once completed, the car was outlawed from the street for being too low.


By the mid 1950s Frank started slowing down, and he began doing regular body work and paint.
