Joe Cirimele's 1955 Ford
1955 Ford 2-door hardtop restyled by Bailon Custom Shop for Satan's Angels member Joe Cirimele, of Oakland, California. Joe's clean Ford was nosed, decked and shaved for door handles. The headlights were reshaped into a pointed oval shape, made by using special made sheet metal headlight rings. This modification gave the lights a tunneled and frenched effect. The front also featured a nice tube grille, made from 1/2" hollow tubing. The taillights were made by using Oldsmobile 98 lenses, set in a tunneled opening formed with 1/4" round rod, backed up with perforated metal. The bumper guards were removed, and the bolts were shaved. Dual spotlights and chromed reversed wheels were added. The car was given an unusual gold scallop paint job at the time, which ended in a striking result.
