What a great post, love the history, those genny Desoto bumpers are the sweetest. I find the stark white to be very sinister and complimentary to the great lines. Thanx ~sololobo~

What an amazing story.

The way those rear fenders are filled and molded is just X-rated. What a slinky, sexy car!

I don't how much this will help, but I used my Ancestry dot com account and looked around census records around 1930.

I found a Richard L Fowler born in July/Aug 1928 in South Gate, LA, CA.

If his car was shown in a mag in 1947 this would make him 19. Sounds around the right time.

I have found a family tree who lists a Richard Fowler borna round such time, but sadly it lists him as passing in 1993.

I have wrote the builder of the tree with the story of the car and if they know if in fact their Richard Fowler owned a 38 Ford.

We now wait and see.

I love it, this is conserving historical vehicles if anything. Alot more fun then dull paintings on a wall, or a candle holder in a bank safe!

Very cool!

Hmm... no posts from Axle on this yet... Since the color photos are obviously from a book or a magazine, does this mean that the restored car will make a surprise debut next weekend?
