Default Re: The Fadeaway Ford

It was believed to have been a Barris built car and I guess Barris even claimed it. However, a well respected and loved magaziner remembered the car and Art and informed the owners.

I'm not sure why the crest is on the car now... Or if it still is...

The important part though is that the car is safe and known.

It was featured in Street Rodder.

This is the first time I have seen a pic of the car with the top. It certainly adds an interesting touch to an already eye catching custom! Car

Jerry Wessner did a great article on it for Street Rodder magaazine.


I got to know bud when he lived in Lakewood, and I would ask him about his car and his dad's shop whenever I saw him. One day he told me he was moving and he gave me a bunch of the trophies he won with the car. I am lucky to have them, and I brought them to the Street Rodder photo shoot. Here is a photo I took of Bud, the Fadeaway Ford, and the trophies I have.

Bud's dad had a deuce 3 window that was a cover car and their shop did the work on the Johnny Taylor Ford. Bud latter had a '39 Chevy that he showed in the early sixties, and I have some trophies from that car too!

Barris did nothing on the car other than photograph it.
