Nick Cozzitorto's 1952 Ford F-1 Pickup. In 1952, with barely 100 miles on the odometer, Nick brought the pickup to Gene Winfield at Winfield's Custom Shop for a full custom treatment. The stock moldings on the hood sides were replaced with louvers. The only available louvering machine was not equipped with an extension capable of reaching the area decided on, so Barris Accessory louver plates were purchased and welded to the hood sides.[1]
Bill Daniels' 1950 Oldsmobile of La Habra, California. Bill was a member of the Agitators of Fullerton car club. Jack Coughran helped Bill restyle and louver the car, before Von Dutch dressed it up with pinstriping in 1956. Jack ran Coughran Louvers, and he punched louvers on the Olds in any area available. 200 in the hood. 100 on deck lid, and on all interior garnish moldings.
