Bobby Bosco has been building hot rods and customs for over 50 years, starting with a '32 three-window he bought for $25 in 1960.
Within a year the coupe was chopped and channeled, and ran a triple 97 and aluminum head-equipped Flathead backed by a LaSalle trans. Check out the picture of it with the flat firewall where Bobby has just installed the motor. This was followed by a '40 coupe, which Bobby chopped, channeled, and sectioned. A chopped 'n' dropped '50 Ford convertible followed that, fitted with a small-block Chevy. That went down the road and was replaced with a '58 Impala convertible, which received a top chop, pancaked and louvered hood, a '54 Chevy grille in a molded front end, and '50 Buick rear bumpers molded to the body. The '60 Pontiac taillights went in the rear before Bobby painted the Chevy Pearl Green with Candy Green scallops. This car made the cover of Custom Rodder in 1963.
Bobby's prolific car building career continued with more than 20 custom show cars before he tackled the '51 Merc shown here, which went on to win Lead East and 25 other Best of Show awards. Riding on a '76 Chevelle frame, the Merc was channeled, then chopped 6 inches in front and 7 1/2 inches in the rear. All corners were rounded before Bobby added his trademark touch: raised sculpture work on the trunk, roof, and front fenders. The story doesn't stop there though, as he's built another eight cars that have placed in the Top 10 at Lead East and is still building at 70 years old. As he says, "It's true love!"
