Part of the secret to a highboy is its grille location. From the Model T to the '34, the shell centered over the axle. Get it too far forward, and a car looks like it wants to fall on its nose; get it too far back and the car looks disproportionate and fragile. An eBay score by Laurie's bud Mark Freeborn, this grille's a '37 Terraplane, probably one of the most polarizing shells out there: get it right and it's beautiful, get it wrong and it's tragic. The tall and skinny bias-ply tires are equally critical to this pickup's look. These are on '35 Ford wires.
