Al Pairish 1954 Ford Skyliner
Body: 1954 Ford Skyliner. Lowered 1 1/2 inches front, and 3 inches rear.
Body seams filled, hoo ...more
d corners rounded, emblems removed, bumpers filled and smoothed,
and hand crafted flush fit and contoured fender skirts.
Taillights are 1960 Chrysler Imperial, and the fender was extended 3/4 inches to facilitate the lens to be vertically flush with bumper.
Grille was hand fabricated using a 1953 Holden bar as the base, that was "stretched" six inches in the center
with additional "teeth" added, and the ends filled and rounded.
Indicator lights are backup lights from a 1964 Ford Galaxy that were machined to fit 1967 VW bezels, which were cut down to mount on the Holden bar.
Headlights are 1957 Oldsmobile. Mirrors are 1961 Ford Galaxy, and hubcaps are 1955 Buick with a Ford centerpiece.
Notice that the indicator lights, hubcaps, mirrors, and taillights all match, even though they all came from different models of different vintages.

It is a four stage color featuring white pearl accents.
