Eldon Gibson's 1940 Oldsmobile
1940 Oldsmobile four door sedan restyled by Modern Motors of Glendale, California. Modern Motors was a Cadillac and Oldsmobile dealer in Glendale, and according to Rods and Customs May 1953 the car caught fire and burned soon after it was first sold. Modern Motors repaired the car. During the restoration the top was chopped two inches and the windshield raked back at a sharper angle. The hood had all holes filled and the body was painted a medium blue with a darker blue on the top. Eldon Gibson subsequently bought the car in 1941. A single spotlight on the driver side, Flipper hubcaps and fenderskirts wrapped up the style on this early pre-war custom.
