CUSTOM OR CLASSIC: Exploring Automotive Expression through Custom Cars and Original Models
LOT #667 – 1957 CHEVROLET CORVETTE 283/250 FUELIE CONVERTIBLE – NO RESERVE

Custom cars and original models from the same year or generation often represent divergent paths in automotive culture, showcasing unique expressions of creativity and tradition. In the realm of custom cars, enthusiasts take pride in modifying vehicles to reflect their individual tastes and personalities, often pushing the boundaries of design and performance. These modifications can range from subtle alterations to radical transformations, encompassing everything from engine upgrades to custom paint jobs and body mods.

Custom cars allow owners to personalize their vehicles, turning them into one-of-a-kind creations that stand out from the crowd. Whether it’s a classic hot rod with a souped-up engine, a lowrider adorned with intricate paint schemes and hydraulics, or a modern tuner car equipped with the latest aftermarket parts, each custom build tells a story of an owner’s passion.

On the other hand, original models represent the purest form of automotive design, embodying the vision of the manufacturer and the era in which they were produced. These vehicles serve as a historical record, preserving the aesthetic and technological characteristics of their time. From iconic muscle cars of the 1960s to sleek sports cars of the present day, original models offer a glimpse into automotive history and heritage.

While custom cars and original models may seem worlds apart, they share a common thread: a love for collector cars and the desire to express oneself through them. Whether it’s through customization or preservation, enthusiasts cherish their cars as more than just modes of transportation ‒ they are symbols of personal identity and artistic expression. Check out these custom and original models selling with No Reserve April 18-20 at the 2024 Palm Beach Auction.

Beach Boy: A surf-ready Yamaha WR155R scrambler from Thailand

yamaha wr155r scrambler 745x497 1

Yamaha WR155R scrambler by Dream Fast Co.
A surfboard rack on a motorcycle might seem like a gimmick to some, but if you live in Bali and love surfing, it’s a downright necessity. The Indonesian island is peppered with surf spots—and a small bike with a rack is the best way to get to them. It doesn’t hurt if that motorcycle looks as good as this Yamaha WR155R scrambler.

The bike was built by Dream Fast Co. for Tiw, the founder of the Laem Yah Rayong Surf Club. Both parties are based in Thailand, but the influence came directly from Bali’s motorcycle and surf culture. Tiw has Balinese friends who use vintage enduro bikes to find hard-to-reach surf spots, and wanted to capture that vibe in his Yamaha WR155R.

Dream Fast Co.’s mandate was to take the modern and reliable WR155R and inject it with a big dose of classic Yamaha dirt bike style. It sounds simple enough on paper, but in reality, it meant wading through piles of plastic to shed the WR155R’s contemporary aesthetic.

Once the Yamaha was denuded of its plastics, the Dream Fast Co. crew set about reworking its lines. The subframe was hacked off, and a new one was fabricated, this time with a kicked-up loop at the back. A new seat sits up top; it’s designed for one, but there is a smidge of space out back if you and your passenger want to get extremely cozy.
