According to the guy my father bought this car from in the Mission District, his brother had bought the car new and driven it straight to a customizing shop. The hood and trunk lid were shaved; the headlights were hooded; and it was given a bright red paint job. The flashy Oldsmobile hubcaps were the fashion of the time.

I showed pictures of this car to Ed Jensen of Yesteryear's Auto Restoration in East L.A. and he said, WOW, an early original custom car!
