In January of 1953, Herb Conway bought a mildly restyled 1950 Ford. He sold the car to his little brother, Hersh "Junior" Conway, who turned it into one of the most famous shoebox customs of the 1950s. After selling the Ford, Herb bought a 1954 Mercury in December of 1954 that he decided to give a mild custom treatment. Photo courtesy of Junior Conway.
A rare photo of Junior Conway's 1950 Ford as it appeared when Junior's older brother, Herb Conway bought it in January of 1953. The front of the hood and the grille pan were already molded, and it had the grille bar. It featured a Gaylord headliner, and according to Junior it supposedly once had the upholstery that was in Buster Litton's 1949 Ford. The car had a 1949 Ford Seat, while it was a 1950 Ford, and Buster's Ford had a 1950 Ford seat, while it was a 1949 Ford. Photo courtesy of Junior Conway.

While Olav Kvipt lived in California, he was able to become friends with Junior Conway of Junior's House of Color in Bell. Junior has been in the trade since he began working for Barris Kustoms in 1955, and is currently operating one of the best, high end body shops in the world. The majority of the photos from Junior's collection are from 1953 to the late 1960s.
