Oh, okay, I guess we were just supposed to KNOW that's what you meant, because it sure isn't what you asked for. :roll:

I think I can pretty safely say that a list like what you're looking for doesn't exist. Besides, it very well could be a wild goose chase. There were ALOT of kustom kar shops in the L.A. area in the '50's and unless you have reason to believe otherwise, your could have been built in any of them. Or maybe not even in California.

Yeah, Sam and George did a lot of cars, many for people who would bring them in one week for a small custom touch, then a month later for another one, and so on until it was done, if ever. There's no way to have recorded everything they did.

And, as vwhobo said, it could have been one of hundreds of small shops, if it was even done in a shop.

Why don't you take some good pictures of the car, post them up, especially with the custom details visible, and then look to old hot rodder sites. Maybe even check here: http://www.jalopyjournal.com/ubbthreads/ubbthreads.php?Cat=

And there may be someone here who knows about it.

But you have to take good pictures so it can be examined.
