EL­E­GANT EM­PEROR: The Suede Palace’s Best Cus­tom tro­phy went to Chris John­son and his ’51 Ford Cus­tom, fit­ted with a 250ci Chevy in­line-six. A mem­ber of the Em­per­ors car club from Vic­torville, Cal­i­for­nia, Chris started his project with a bone-stock ex­am­ple in 2012. The ends of the grille are orig­i­nal, but he hand­formed the cen­ter sec­tion, then brazed the three com­po­nents for a one-piece look.
