1955 Ford owned by Jerry Koller. The car is also known as the "Doll Buggy" and was nosed and decked to achieve a smoother look before legendary custom painter Larry Watson of Watson's House of Style painted it Burma green with scallops in a darker shade over a gold base. The car was striped by Watson as well and the body was lowered 5 inches all around by cutting the coils and installing lowering blocks. The front end was modified slightly by installing a mesh grille and horizontal chromed bars.[2] Green rubber bullets were installed over the parking lights to match the body color. The interior was re-done in pleats and the dashboard was covered with long haired fur. Dual spotlights, full length lakes pipes and Starfire Spinner hubcaps wrapped up the style. After it was completed, the Doll Buggy graced the cover of Custom Rodder June 1959.[3]
