Kustoms Illustrated Number 44 – back issue
The cover car this issue is Rob Radcliffe’s incredible chopped ’50 Ford custom. Rob’s Ford was built to look like it could have rolled out of the Barris Kustom Shop in 1953. Also, this issue we have two “overseas” kustoms. Starting in Oslo, Norway, we have Sondre Kvipt’s tribute to Jerry Divito’s wild ’57 Ford called “The Maze.” Sondre based his version on a Ranchero body, and with the help of his brother, recreated the crazy paint job Jerry had on his hardtop. Next is Jason and Roxy Taranto’s mild ’56 Ford Victoria. This cool cruiser was built in the USA and now resides in Melbourne, Australia. This issue features Robert Gallery’s gorgeous ’54 Cadillac in a stunning copper pearl. It has to be seen to be believed! features a huge article on one of the greatest custom car shows in the world. I’m talking about none other than West Coast Kustoms’ Cruisin’ Nationals in Santa Maria.
