Kustoms Illustrated Number 33 – back issue
Issue #33 is another grand-slam packed with traditional custom cars! This issue features the clone of the famous Larry Watson-created “Grapevine” 1950 Chevy – one of the all time best customs to come out of the 1950s! We also have a East coast-style ’57 Ford mild custom that could have easily been every teenagers dream back in the late ’50s. Out of the Mid-West, a custom that is taking the world by storm and racking up awards and show points wherever it is displayed is Kevin Anderson’s ’36 Ford coupe decked out in blue velvet suede. This is one smooth custom, and Kustoms Illustrated is the first magazine to feature it! From California via Japan, you’ll go bananas over “Gone Bananas” – a super cool 1953 Mercury hardtop. Built by Chet Miller and recently freshened up by the legendary Gene Winfield! This car is scheduled to be shipped to Japan shortly and once again, Kustoms Illustrated is the first and probably the only magazine to feature this new custom that’s hitting the streets in Southern California. Event coverage in issue #33 features the Detroit Autorama and the 11th installment of the Lone Star Roundup! Rik Hoving’s popular “Tales from the Vintage Photo Album” is back! Rik delves deep into the 1940’s era of customizing for this edition with many never-before-published photos from his collection. Rik also brings us another installment of Larry Watson’s personal photos, this time concentrating on pickup trucks and the famous “Yellow Pearl” Studebaker owned by Dick Gonzales. Another packed issue in living color!
