I’ve always loved mild customs, especially those done in authentic late 50’s and early 60’s style. Just for fun, I did some Photoshop tricks on a picture of a stock ’60 Buick Convertible to test out some ideas. I shaved the door handles, but left the fender “port holes” and side trim. Lowered it and installed some ’53 Buick Skylark wire wheels and thin-whitewall tires. Paint job is a classic Gene Winfield style fade done in pale yellow/gold over white pearl. Will I build the car this way? Probably not. While it would certainly be cool, I don’t have the skill yet to pull-off a paint job like that… and that really is the critical element of this custom, and those Skylark Wire wheels are VERY expensive. I think what I will likely do, is paint the car back to it’s original Casino Cream with the green/white interior and green top. I’ll leave all the trim, engine and interior stock but lower the car with air-bags and install chrome reverse rims on wide-whitewall tires. This way, it will still have a bitchen mild custom look, but can be easily put back to stock should I, or a future owner decide to do that.
