Showrod Sunday...Rev. Billy's Kopperhed

Billy Gibbons is one of my top 5 favorite guitarists. Now Billy doesn't build his own cars, but he knows customs, what will look right, and what he wants. Steve Stanford rendered the car and Pete Chapouris of Pete and Jake's built the car.
While this car isn't my usual "showrod", this car is a lesson in styling and restraint. Check the pic of the roof chop and then look at the stock Ford. You can see a drastic difference, yet the outcome looks like it could have rolled out of Detroit like this. I love this car!

Here you can see the stock roofline.Take note of the "B"
and "C" pillars. Also take a look at the length,of the doors.
And here's Kopperhed in the metalworking stage.
Quite a difference, yet not radical.
