    Johan Norlin 1957 Chrysler New Yorker

    Words by Johan Norlin:
    Here are some photos from my project. When most of the bodywork was done
    I suddenly decided to lift the body from the frame and do a careful restoration
    ...more

    of everything on the chassi, like the stock 392 Hemi and trans.
    I made steel molds to form the windshield and back window, these molds
    were then sent to a glass factory in Finland which manufactured them.
    Other than the kustomized body and lots of chrome I try to keep as much
    as possible original or use parts from other Mopar cars from the same era.
    I will have a ´59 De Soto swivel seat (electric) in the interior and I also trans-
    formed the original clock into a tachometer to look like it should have been made by Chrysler. The tail lights were formed from plexi glass and now integrates the backuplenses just to make them bigger and taller.
    The back up lenses (from some ´60 Dodge station wagon) were moved down to the rear bumper before that went to the plating company.
    In the front, the "eyelids" over the headlights were extended 1" to accomodate
    new bezels(in brass then chromed) copied from the originals.
    The front bumper will be the original but I dont know yet which grille to use,
    maybe the ´59 or ´60 Cadillac grille.

    Keijo Hokkanen 1957 Cadillac

    Cadillac Coupe DeVille -57

    Car came from Virginia and the last taxtag is from -86.It had only 400 ...more

    00 miles on (plastic still over the backseat)when a guy named Joacim Krantz found it.He took it to Sweden and tagwelded rearfins from -58 and painted it flatblack.He had done the same proces + chopped top in -55 or 56 Caddy (I dont remember which year? ).That car is now in Germany and have visited Sweden many times.He sold the car to a guy who made a new interior,but because of studies,lack of money, he had to sell it.We met halfway on the road and when I saw that car coming with loud,straight pipes, it looked like a batmobile, I was sold.It was snowing when I drove it back.After a couple of sliding routes in town, I parked Caddy in my carage and started to pick it apart.The year was 1998.It took six long years to get it back on the streets again.The body was stripped,some bodyworks was done,spec. left rear fender which was hitted somewhere and has 4 cm bondo!!(see picture). Tailfinns welded properly and leaded.Rear taillighthousing was modifikaited and two -59 Caddy lights was fitted inside the housings.I warmt upp the lower end of the original tailfinnsmolding to follow the new form.Ford -39 lights was added to bumperends instead of original exhausttips.Had to make a new housing for this lights.Fillergap for gastank is Made by Tolle(pat.pend) and is a bikestuff and is flushmounted in the bumber.Exhausttips are" halfwaycut" in the bumber (stainless steel).Trunk has new interior and remote controll.Shaved outside.Doors are shaved too and have keyless remote controll.Sidemoldings are away (exept rockermoldings and wheelwell).Front end has a tubegrill.Instead of rubber "dagmars end" a friend to me made these of aluminium.Parkinglights are made of round tube with -59 Caddy lights on.Chromed brassribs instead of orig.mold. in the frontfender.Hood is shaved too.Headlamps had "missile model" becels.Original hubcaps(one of the most popular in custom cars) but with centrumbullets and red stripes.Cooker classic tires. Powderpainted or epoxy black everywhere in the undercarriage after sandblasting.Motor is 365 cid with six pack.Four speed Jetaway automatic.In the engine room there are many small modifikations (too many to list ,see picture).Homemade batterybox,covered between bumber and radiator (0,5 mm stainless steel).Offenhauser valvecovers with lasercut "Shark DeVille " stainlessteel "script" etc... Because the tailfinns look like a shark ones I call the car Shark.Interior is the only thing I´m not satisfied.I prefer tuck´n roll ,but because it was new when I bought the car and cost extra to do again so.....I made orange acrylends to all interior

    knobbs and made a konsol for stereo,air ride,power antenn switch etc.The speedometer comes from -58.Everything has new chrome and new tinted glass around the car.Extra brakelight on the rear tray is modified from a family game, a shark with bullet eyes.Chromeflames are bikestuff.Totally 60 different modifikations made.I didn´t want to chop the top because with air ride down the car looks low and there is so much glass in the car and I don´t like side glasses that you must "handpick" down.There is neonlights under the car to show the "kids" :)Paint is Volvo "safran pearl" with some extra clearcoat sprayed and a famous artist,a friend of mine,Pekka "Wizzzard" Mannermaa has pinstraipped the car.The car has been featured in Swedish and Finnish carmagazines.I have drived 7000 miles in Sweden,Finland and Norway under the three years the car has been roadready. No trailer queen!!.Caddy has got tventy different prizes from top ten to people choise under two years.John d´Agostino gave to me Kustoms of Americas Kustom Award "For achievement in keeping the Kustom movement alive" in Sweden 2004.Not bad with the homemade car in the world of multimillion dollar pro built vehicles.

    Norwegian Blacksmith's -36 coupe

    Built from an all dented humbback Sedan.

    This is how the car looked when we found it.
    A lot of new metal on this one. Its easier to cut up a bad humpback than a coupe.
    ...more

    The new floor is 3" higher up in the body.
    The frame has a 3" kick-up in the rear.
    The grille is tilted 1,5 " more than it is supposed to.

    The lower rear pan is an aftermarket replacement part.
    The rest of the rear body work is scratch built from sheet metal over a home made frame.
