Robert Giblock's 1951 Ford
1951 Ford 2 door restyled by Korky's Kustom Shop for Robert Giblock of Whippany, New Jersey. Also known as Bobby, Robert's Ford was fitted with a 1957 Chevrolet Corvette grille that Korky placed inside a 1953 Chevrolet grille shell. The car was lowered by C'ing the frame. Power came from a 1956 Ford engine that was dressed up with chrome accessories. Bobby's custom made its debut at the 1960 Hartford Autorama.
Bobby's mother was a neighbor of Korky. She lived on 19 Polhemus Terrace, and her backyard backed up to Korky's property. Bobby stayed in the area working at many auto body shops in Morris County, New Jersey.
