Not to often do we see a 1955 Chevy Sedan Delivery done up as a Custom Car. Larry painted this one in an off white pearl with gold flake top and butterscotch candy highlights. The unidentified car sits just right on wide whites and chrome reverse wheel in front of the Bill DeCarr/Watson Artesia blvd somewhere in 1960. The car had some chrome removed, but the door handles and hood ornament stayed in place. The Custom tube grille works well with 1955 Chevies....

1956 Chevy from the Larry Watson Collection this photo really shows how simple but effective this car was. Larry's purple candy paint job is outstanding, and is even enhanced by the cars all white tuck interior. The emblems where shaved, but that was as far as the customizing on the body went. The rest was done with perfect stance and the right set of wheels/tires and details.

Another great snapshot of Larry's personal 1957 Cadillac Brougham. This time it shows us a good view of the really nicely done interior done by Eddie Martinez in white pearl leatherette and pink fur carpeting. We also get a good look at the chrome plated door panels. Larry had a lot of parts chrome plated on this car. This photo is showing the car in the later version with the silver inset panel decorated with the horizontal chrome tape.

John Busman's 1956 Chevy in 1960's John had Larry repaint his very nice 1956 Chevy in a solid purple candy with pearl pink behind the side trim. A striking combination which looks extremely good on this car. A '56 Chevy which is only mildly customized with some trim removal, Spotlights, Lancer four bar hubcaps and a fantastic all white tuck interior....

A really great early evening photo of a really great 1960 Ford Starliner Custom in the front of Larry Watson's shop everything on it is just so right. The colors which appear to be dark champaign pearl with a dark candy brown on the top. But this is hard to tell in the late eventing sunlight. The stance on this car is really working well for it making it look like its going fast standing still.

Really nice snapshot of LaVonne Bathke's 1958 Corvette in front of Larry famous 9012 Rosecrans blvd. Bellflower Shop. The long shadow and soft yellow orange sunlight indicates the photo was taken at the end of the day. Larry painted this 1958 Corvette at least twice for LaVonne. THis is the first version and the panel paint gives the near stock body a much slimmer look. The Custom hubcaps, lake pipes and dummy spotlights give is the perfect custom touch. One of the best Corvettes Larry ever did.

photo of Larry Watson's 1957 Cadillac Brougham shows how well detailed the car was. Wonderful pearl white tuck upholstery with soft pink carpeting. I love the detail on the fully upholstered gas filler inside the trunk. Larry added some additional chrome parts, including a fully chrome jack and a chromed box on the right which I cant tell what it is...
