Car: Sterling custom (CCC owner Norm Rose)

 

This car I bought from another club member in Texas. It's the car that was owned by Norm Rose, one of the owners of California Componet Cars back in the day. It is a completely custom build by Norm and a few other people, and has a complete tube chassis and a mid-engine V6 Ford engine. The body is constructed from two of the original versions of the Sterling, and was fitted with the optional hide-away headlights. It's currently awaiting it's turn to be restored, stay tuned for more photos as that happens!
