Doyle Gammell 3-window coupe
« on: June 26, 2016, 01:50:45 PM »
Doyle Gammel, one of the early members of the L.A. Roadsters, built his dark brown, full-fendered three-window back in the Sixties while he worked for Ed Roth. The top was chopped three inches in the back and three and a half in the front. The car sat lower than its contemporaries, with its polished Torq-Thrusts, Moon tank, dropped headlight bar and smaller headlights adding to its aggressive look.

Doyle sold the car many years ago, but ended up missing it so much he built the one shown here. The new car is just like the original, right down to the Rochester-injected 283.

After having been built and masterfully chopped by Dick Bergren and then sold to Doyle, this classic coupe made its magazine debut in the December 1963 issue of Rod & Custom, where it has appeared many times since, including the April, 1993 issue, which shows it after being bought and updated by Tom Schiffilea with a strong L-88 rat motor. The car now lives under the care of Bruce Meyer.
