Canadian Custom

There's something really cool about this 51 Chevy.  This is what a custom should be. A look all its own. A car that could be picked out of a line up but isn't over done or gaudy.  Originally owned by Cort Elliot of Canada, it looks to have the classic mods ; 58 Lincoln headlights, Packard tail lights, chopped and lowered with a custom grill treatment, but there is something about how it works on this car.  It's pure harmony. The only thing I can surmise is that who ever built it, either had a good eye or good luck . The car went through several changes in paint and wheel combinations but always maintained it's perfect lines. It's still around today and frequently shows up at car events. Thank God.
