Custom Vintage Car baby Carriage
Some time back (around 2003) I was commissioned by the family of expecting parents to fabricate this car as a present. Working from some reference photos of vintage cars I sculpted the body in foam and made a fiberglass cast positive. I acquired a a chassis from an old carriage and refurbished it. Thirty days later with a broke leg I finished it. My wife helped with the upholstery of the top and interior.
Recently the couple brought it to the Jazz Age Lawn Party on Governors Island in NYC and displayed it. Lucky for them it also was big enough to hold their cooler.
