Larry Cantor's 1953 Ford
1953 Ford Club Coupe restyled by Styler's Custom in San Diego & Jack's Auto Shop for Larry Cantor of California. The car was nosed and decked, however the door handles were kept. The grille assembly was actually of a 1956 Ford. The headlights were frenched, and the hood corners were rounded. The stock bumpers were used, but the guards were taken off to achieve a cleaner appearance. Two notches were cut in the rear fender to recess the exhaust tips. Bullet-type accessory taillights were shortened and molded to the fenders, a rather easy job that changes the lines to flow more from a side view. The side trim was made by combining a set of two 1955 DeSoto trim. Oldsmobile Fiesta hubcaps on whitewalls wrapped up the style.
