CCC-ckos-2014-leadparking-03Johan L√∂fgren’s chopped 1949 Buick Sedanette with some amazing¬†detail on the flipped ’56 Packard taillights and custom shaped splash-pan. We have seen these taillights used like this on a few other customs, but never was the instalment done so well as on Johan’s Buick.

CCC-ckos-2014-leadparking-01Jonathan de Besche’s 1948 Chevy coupe with amazing chop and perfect stance. Jonathan uses an 1946 Chevy grille on his ’48 model. The lines of the older grille are just nicer, and fit the looks Jonathan was aiming for better. Gloss paint is planned… but not for a while.

CCC-ckos-2014-leadparking-13Janne Lundell from Finland brought his Timo Hersti built 1941 Lincoln Zephyr in its new wonderful brown paint to the CKOS LeadParking. This well styled Custom used to be a really nice dark metallic green, but was recently updated with an impressive deep dark brown.

CCC-ckos-2014-leadparking-08There is a lot of major Custom Restyling going on on this 1954 Ford seen at the 2014 CKOS LeadParking show. The car was chopped and sectioned amongst many other body changes. Yet, still it remains relatively mild in appearance. The project was originally started by Per Webb, who designed and planned the car. When the unfinished project was sold the new owner, Tore Persson, he fortunately went the same direction with the car as Per originally planned… with a few exceptions.

CCC-ckos-2014-leadparking-18Front view of the chopped and sectioned 1954 Ford. The grille and taillights used of the new owner differe a bit from Per’s original vission. The overdone pin-striping that is now on the car, is something Per also never planned to do. It does take away from the beautiful lines of this amazing Custom¬†Car.

CCC-ckos-2014-leadparking-07Very nicely done mild Custom ’51 Chevy Fleetline owned by¬†Per Dolk. Mild lowering and mild de-chroming. Custom hubcaps on white wall tires and gold/orange wheels and a set of very stylish scallops is all you need to create an amazing ride.

CCC-ckos-2014-leadparking-05You do not see many chopped 1949 Buick Sedanette’s, makes sense since they are not all that easy to chop. But there were TWO of them at the CKOS 2014 LeadParking show. Johan’s maroon version shown above¬†and here¬†is the other one. Darren Chapman super black very well proportioned Buick.

  1. That trophy is even more fantastic if you consider it was made from stainless sheet scrap pieces welded and grinded into the wonderful shape of an early custom. The artist is the multi talented Allan Bergman.
