Old Buick - Unsure of the year?

Not real sure what this was, it does have a Buick Nailhead motor. The grill is home made, the hood is welded on, back covered behind front seats, and looked like they changed windshield? 1956 or 1957 Ford headlights

Idea 321: Look in past issues of Rod & Custom of the 50's & 60's. and maybe you'll find it there in it's original state.

yeah that looks like studebaker front bumper, we had a 57 scotsman when i was a kid. a real, orig custom like that would be hot right now,too bad its so rough.

This is just sad! This looks like it was probably a really nice custom at one time. Maybe it was in a fire and that's why it ended up in it's current state. it would be great if somebody knew some history on it.

It is a1954 or 55. At one time you payed good money for a custom grill like that.
