’38 Fords a go…

’38 Fords a go…


I guess it is only natural that my first real post on The Jalopy Journal is about a ’38 Ford. My passion for them started while I was researching vintage dirt track racing back in the early 90’s. Amazingly (to me anyway), the fellas back in the day considered this model somewhat homely. As a result, it was the ’38 that was often chosen to go under the knife in preparations for the big dirt races of the time. It’s really pretty ironic that a car considered by most historic rodders as ugly now has such a rich racing tradition… And it was that heritage that really tickled my interest.

Apparently, I’m not the only one. H.A.M.B. member “Harrison” recently picked up his dream car – a 1938 Ford Deluxe Coupe. You can read more about it in Harrison’s words here.
