1962 Ford Thunderbird restyled by Barris Kustoms for Dick Axcell. Axcell's Thunderbird was one of the first asymmetrical customs to appear on the West Coast. The build made its debut in 1962. The list of modifications included a unique off-set headlight, an asymmetrical grille, and an asymmetrical hood scoop. Mild alterations that still resulted in a dramatic and futuristic front end.
