Bob Shelby's 1957 Ford
1957 Ford owned by Bob Shelby of Long Beach, California. Bob was a member of the Cut Outs Car Club. Bob liked the lines of his '57, so he decided to restyle the car with the use of paint and custom upholstery. The only additions to the car was the sidepipes, handmade wheel spinners, spotlights, and chrome bullets in the center of the taillights. Bob's car was painted in Champagne Mist with contrasting scallops and chrome tape. The top had wide paint stripes running from front to rear with a center overlay of chrome tape. The paint theme was duplicated on the top of the dash panel. The paint-matching upholstery was done in rolls and pleats.
