From the rear you can see how well the chopped top flows into the heavily modified trunk area (very nice). 

The modern look has been enhanced with the use of trimless window rubber throughout (as opposed to the stock version in background).



 



 




Other rear end modifications include a rolled pan, recessed license plate box, and custom, flushmounted taillights.  The fender skirts had to be mounted to fit appropriately, but look as if they were made for the '47.

 


A Tale of Two Sedanettes
From the pages of Street Rodder

A few years ago, when Canadian Bernie Aaron finished restoring his 1947 6207 fastback, he pondered what to do with the rolling carcass of his donor parts car. There wasn't much left but the basic body shell, so Aaron took the only logical course, and used it as the basis for a custom Sedanette. These photos show both the stocker and the custom which Aaron dubbed the "Radillac". In looking at the above photos it is clear that there are many differences. Contemporary touches on the custom include a '41 Cad grille, modified 1948 Olds fender skirts and Euro-style racing wheels. The trunk area was sectioned when the top was chopped giving the custom the appropriate flow. Aaron used a 500 ci Eldorado V-8 and Turbo 400 transmission. The CLC does not sanction customizing, in this instance however, a stock coupe got restored, and an otherwise unrestorable carcass got a new lease on life. This article was contributed to the C&W by member Ray Hunter.
