An old custom I found in the basement of a barn near my home in '07. Owner wouldn't sell at the time, said it was a car he bought for his wife many years ago, she calls it "tweety bird". He bought it from someone in Florida who said it was originally built in California in the early '60's and he was told possible Barris but he could never substantiate those claims. Fast forward 5 years later, the owner passes away & the wife has someone come in and sell off her husbands cars, including the custom. From what she was told by the "broker", the car went to Texas but has no other info,maybe it'll turn up again someday. I really wish I could have bought it back in '07........

Reno and Ray Paretto of Alameda, California, built this Kurtis/Muntz Jet looking creation in the late 1940s/early 1950s. I put this car on Ebay 3 months ago, and it got 5,000 views, and lots of interest but no sale. I have decided to start the auction for less than I have in it, no reserve, to really spur some real interest! It started out as a 1937 Ford. It was shown at the 1951 and 1952 Oakland Roadster Shows, and the 1952 Oakland International Sports Show, plus others we have yet to document. The car even comes to the new owner with its 1951 Oakland Roadster Show trophy, that it won in its class!! For an AMAZING article filled with original photos, history, etc. please click on the following link to Rik Hoving's recent article on the car, that appeared on the Custom Car Chronicle website: http://www.customcarchronicle.com/custom-cars/paretto-37-ford-custom/


This article covers much of the creation, and showing of the car in the early 1950s. Its present condition is as close to original time capsule that you will find in the custom car/hot rod collectors universe, period. The car has always been in California and is rust free. I purchased the car from a gentleman that bought it from the estate of the long time 3rd owner. Several years ago this gentleman was approached by the Barrett Jackson Auction house, and they sent a film crew to California to photograph and video the car at his home. They informed him the car would absolutely bring in the 125 to 150K range at their upcoming auction. However that deal to auction it eventually broke down, as they wanted the owner to list it for sale no reserve, and he was unwilling to do that. This spring the same owner put it on Ebay, but then decided did not sell it on the auction site.


I bought it later from him in a private transaction, for more than the opening bid on this auction. He was well aware of what he had, I assure you. The prior owner drove the car regularly. He had the gas tank and lines cleaned, and put a new carb on the motor. The motor runs like new and the car drives and shifts well. The brakes need to be bled, and a few minor wiring issues. Other than that the car appears ready to go, cruise, and show. The car can be shown as is with the later version of its grill, probably done in the 1950s, or with the original, that comes with the car, can be reinstalled.


This is truly once in a lifetime opportunity to own a documented from new, original, trophy winning car from an early Oakland Roadster Show event. This is also a blue chip investment, that will continue to go up in double digit value yearly. I strongly suspect you could take this car to one of the Pebble Beach Week auctions in August, and make quite an nice profit on your purchase.


Since I am in Florida, and seldom fly, this is simply not feasible for me to do. However for a West Coast based buyer, it would be easy, and there is ample time to get it entered in one of the 5 major auctions held Pebble Beach Week. The car comes with a newly issued Florida title from me. It is stored in Ocala, Fla., and this is the first time it has ever been out of California!

Re: Custom Sport Coupe

Message  Predicta le Mer 4 Mar - 13:47

Hi Gang…
I love mystery cars.  Seems like lots of you out there do too.  I think that’s a great thing…
I’ll continue to feature Mysterions – our name for mystery cars – throughout the year, and I thought we would add another one I found on Ebay a few years ago out in Denver Colorado to the gang…

Mysterions are named so because they come with no history.  Or shreds of history suggesting their past.  Sometimes you can find bits of information on the cars in terms of how they were built and items embedded in the body and chassis.  One such car I found in Orlando Florida had a license plate hammered into the firewall to identify the date it was built.  Very strange, but true.  I’ll see if Darren Swanson will feature his car in these pages soon, and he can tell you the story about how he determined the exact year his car/body was built.  But that’s for another day.


Mysterions were built, in the majority, by backyard or unknown builders.  As such, the good ones are balanced in design and construction, and the ones that leave a bit to the imagination – not so.  Often there are one or two features of a Mysterion which are questionably done.  But…overall they can be right on the mark – and fun to look at.  Hence…the Mysterion I found on Ebay several years ago that I now call the “Studebaker Stilletto”.

This was a neat project for the people who did the car.  I was told that a father/son team had built it, but it was abandoned and towed to a junk yard.  That was told to me by the seller on ebay – the junkyard dealer.  All research I did – did not result in any further information and that’s the shame of Mysterions.  They were the dream of someone somewhere in time from someplace…but how do you fill in the details???  It’s like finding items from an archeological dig – at a garage sale with no history.  Worth saving, and yearning for the real history of the items to unfold.  But just whispers of details from the past….

Rik Hoving actually passed me the information on the car and as I recall, I was the high bidder at $294.  Transportation back to Tampa was $500, and part of the front right fender disintegrated during the trip.  But it made it without much more damage.  I love the front end design of the car. The car has a certain appeal – if you kind of unfocus your eyes a bit.  I think it was inspired by the design of Brooks Steven “Valykyrie” of which I posted a picture below.  The interior was nicely done, the front end had appeal, but toward the back…not so much (politely).  It was based on a Stude chassis, some Stude interior parts, and 6 cylinder Stude Flathead.
 
Not many cars used these components and for this reason alone…the car has appeal.  So…I’ve been experimenting on what to do with the car.  I know that I couldn’t fix it the way it was…it’s ugly and pretty – simultaneously.  But keep in mind..as you restore these cars from back then…some are easy to restore and sometimes you have to help the original builder / designer out a bit to achieve what they were looking for.  I think this falls in the latter.

So…plan #1.  Let’s fix the car (in theory) with photoshop and see what we get.  To do this, I brought in my good friend Jeff Allison, who is a designer and artist up in the NorthWest.  Jeff loved the idea and proposed we do a few things to the car.  First…he moved the front axle forward.  Next…he added a styling line on the side that would make the shape of the door more appealing.  Finally…he completed the Studebaker theme with Stude hubcaps and a nice hardtop too.  Interesting proposal here with other design elements included, and much nicer looking car.  You can see these in the Photoshop images showing the original car at the top of each image and the photoshopped car at the bottom.
But….let’s take it another step further.  That is…Plan #2.  Let’s see what we can design based on the original concept, but having some fun with it.  To this end, Jeff did a magnificent job and put together renderings / drawings in color of how the car could be completed – if we built it from scratch.  What a fantastic car this would be!  It looks just like it should have been built – back in the day.  A concept car par excellence…
So…where does this project stand?  Not sure at the moment…I love the car, and the idea of what it might become, but like most of you…projects take time and money.  We’ll see what holds out for this, but what a great looking car would result in the end.  My main point is that many cars out there – especially from the period of the 1950’s that were home built – deserve a second chance.  Some just need to be restored, but some deserve to be saved – and then some.
I thought I would share one tale of another Mysterion for you to chew on a bit….and look forward to any comments each of you may have on the Fiberglass Forums.
