I have always liked this little roadster ever since I first saw it included in the Hot Rod mag's 50th anniversary article (TRJ #10). I have wondered if it still existed, well I finally know thanks to SuperFleye's post.

Kool ride!! I think the 27 on a deuce frame is one of the best classic combinations although it requires a little work to look right. Keep em coming. Thanks,Cat

One of my all time favorite's as well. On my top ten list of "wish I owned". Was even in Car Craft (Nov. 64) as a demo in a write up on Rear end treatments and such.

Carl Burnett I believe ended up with a obsolete Ford store in San Diego. I stopped there a couple of times from Minnesota. He had the most rare parts ever. His roof of the store was full of sheet metal. Agreat guy and easy to deal with.

I must have liked it. It's still sticks in my mind.
Thats how I remember it too, a PUSSER sitting in it. I think its was in the HotRod Mag 50th anniversary book, I was always fascinated by the rear end in that thing.
And that exhaust always intrigued me, I lost count of how many models I built as a kid with that style exhaust.

My first ever car magazine purchase was the October1959 issue of RODDING and Re-styling (25 cents) and featured this roadster on the cover and on pages 4,5,and 6. It was this mag that initiated this crazy affliction.

Hi my name is Dale Tenney and I owned this car from 1980-1988. I just faced booked the current owner to offer photo's and information. I just knew the car would surface some time, I sold it thru Antique Automotive in 1988 and I guess it went down hill after that. It was in really bad shape when I found it at Carl Burnetts Christmas party in 1980. The car was laying on the ground. A friend told me what the car was and I bought it. I tried to up load some pictures for you guy's but I guess I have to learn how. I really miss the car, it was fun to drive but I ran out of money and wanted to buy a house, same old story. The rear end is a 1936 Vandy.
