A web seacxh turns up several projects where the builder tried to do them in a more traditional vein but very few apparently have ever been finished. Here's one from MCM which, except for the exaggerated slammed stance has some elements of a more traditional version:
I have one from which I stole the modern style wheels that I keep meaning to back date. I, too, think it can be done well and traditionally in your capable hands.
I think it can work if the car is back-dated a bit...the overall style out of the box is very neo-retro, like a Ridler award contender. Has some odd proportions, like the quarter windows, which Joel filled on his version.
Bernard--I like that slammed custom, a lttle blobby but clever use of the AMT '49 Ford optional bumper!
I've always liked the design of that car and started cutting one up when it first came out, but lost interest in part because of the strange plastic that it's molded in and mostly I was having scale issues while trying to source parts for a period kustom...although it has a low profile, that car is BIG, wide and long.
This is a good spot to drop a quick note or ask for help. If you are in a bad mood, this isn't the right spot to drop feelings. Thanks for understanding!

krassandbernie: Yup! I have 3 that are 'seconds'.......which are nicer than what you'd get most anywhere else; or you can just order one. Send me a pm if you are still interested; and we can go from there.
