So little information on cars customized before 1936. The more I look at these early cars the more I wish guys would build cars to emulate this style. Everyone knows the work of George Duvall and Frank Kurtis but I'm sure there were others.

More pre-war customs.  Customized '39-40s are my favorites

More pre-war customs.  Remember that these were nearly new cars when they were customized.
