1951 Chevrolet - Jerry Sahagon

Message  Predicta le Dim 31 Aoû - 9:39


1951 Chevrolet Club Coupe originally restyled by Bailon's Custom Shop for Satan's Angels member Jerry Sahagon of Hayward, California. Jerry worked hand in hand with Bailon customizing his Chevy. The unique grille consisted of two 1954 Buick bumpers and bullets, round center bars and seven 1953 Mercury teeths were placed in the upper grille cavity. The scooped headlights were frenched using 1954 Mercury headlight rims. Small air-scoops, featuring five 1953 Mercury trim teeth, were crafted onto the rear fenders. 1956 DeSoto taillights were grafted onto the extended rear fenders. The rear bumper was taken from a 1953 Oldsmobile. Jerry's car was lowered six inches both rear and aft. The car was decked and shaved for handles, but the side trim and hood molding were kept stock. The Chevy rolled on wide white walls with Oldsmobile Fiesta hubcaps. Once the body was completed, the car was painted in Bailon's own mixture of "Candy Apple". Jerry's car was actually the first car ever to be painted Candy Apple red. About five months and $500 later, Jerry's Club Coupe was finished.[1]


Jerry's Chevrolet was later restyled by Joe Ortiz. The Bailon restyled front was placed onto a second car and modified to accept a pair of canted quad headlights.[2] The top on the second car, also a 1951 Chevrolet, was chopped 6 inches and fit with a one-piece windshield. This time the side trim and hood molding were shaved. Dual spotlights, lakes pipes and special made hub caps were added. A hand formed scoop was grafted on to the hood, custom taillights were tunneled on the quarter panels and the rear of the car was modified to accept a custom made bumper. The rear wheel openings were reshaped, and two peaks were molded on to the deck lid. Jerry's Chevrolet was later shown at the 1960 National Roadster Show. By then it featured a pleated and tufted Naugahyde and velvet interior stitched by Jerry himself. The car had also received a Pearl White and Chicano Purple scallop paint job by Joe Ortiz.
