    I have been a fan of the model 40 Phaetons for a long time and recently became interested in building one. I have owned Deuce Phaetons but never a model 40. Prefer the traditional style with buggy springs and dropped axle. Here is one I have seen in person and loved it. If you have some examples please include them in this post. 120427267_3664230153597589_6274882975728912505_o.jpg Image 10-1-20 at 8.58 PM.jpg 02-1521562892749@2x (2).jpg Image 10-1-20 at 8.55 PM (1).jpg

    Lynn, that is a fine example to use for your next one, some non garden variety things on it that really stand out, the wheels for one, I remember a time when all you saw on a phaeton were chrome wires, but it's those Barnes sprint car heads that really set it apart from the average hot rod, especially a phaeton.

    That's a home built hot rod. Only things farmed out were some of the machining, polishing, plating, pinstriping, and interior. Jim sold the car and the last I knew it was in Florida.

    Hello,

    Back in the photojournalist days, we saw several neat cars at a local Santa Barbara hot rod run. The name Toro Canyon Park rings a bell, but that was over 30 years ago… so, memories fade for specifics. The two things we do remember: one was being introduced to a guy name “Big Hearted Ken.” He was a wealth of knowledge of the whole Santa Barbara hot rod and custom scene. That was a good start. He also wore two color wire frame glasses. One was reddish and the other light blue.

    The other memory bank revival was that my wife liked Santa Barbara, but could not wait to get out of the park where the hot rods were all congregating. Normally she was into the hot rod scene and this was her type of place.


    But, this time, despite the nice lunch and cold drinks available, she did not want to stay long. One thing was that she got stung by a wasp. Those little flying guys were randomly dive bombing everyone and they chose her to sting. Only one sting on the lower neck area and that was it. Cold ice packs kept the swelling down and luckily, she did not pass out. So, after introductions and a few photos, we said our good-byes for another day.

    Later on that year, “Big Hearted Ken” called us back and told us to come up to his shop in Goleta. It was a long drive, but since my brother’s family lived in Summerland, visiting the area was always fun. Of course, our late night conversations always led to hot rods, our Impala racing days and the build of the 1940 Willys 671 SBC Coupe.

    My wife felt that this old photo is what “Big Hearted Ken” would see through his glasses. It reminded us of… “Seeing the world through rose colored glasses.”

    The surprise was the beginning of a 1934 Ford Phaeton custom build. We had never followed the construction phase of any hot rod build and this was a first. When I began to take photos of the early build shots, it sparked the minds of the editors who saw the photos, instantly. It became a guarantee photo spread, if I could come through with classic color photos, as well as some black and whites.

    I wasn't a fan of these initially but I have warmed up to them over the years.
