Those skirts are still growing! A photo of Tom Liechty's 1950 Plymouth custom taken at the 1955 Detroit Autorama. This was Tom's first show-worthy mild custom. The build was completed in 1955, and it featured a white primer finish with glossy Packard gold highlights. Bubble skirts and blue glass all around completed the desired look.
