That is one sweet looking machine. Great work and congrats
Nice job indeed, it is great to see these cars finished! Enjoy your ride!
Nice car! A friend of mine sent me a pic from a show as I used to have a '41. Also saw it in the West Coast Kustoms calendar.
Damn! I need to get one of those calendars.. unfortunately there are only 30 days in March 2015
Picked this up this weekend at GNRS Pomona. Looking good!
ekend at GNRS! Looking good!
Car is for sale. Gotta fund the new build!
My first car  was a40 Plymouth 2 dr sedan, got it for $15, had a blown head gasket.
I was 16 and lived in Daly City, Ca; towed it home with a rope.
I built a baby hemi for it a Dodge Red Ram but Dad saw those huge valve covers and said no way.
So I had to stick with a 6, bummer.
I built a 59 Dodge flathead six, Edmunds Custom intake with 2 carbs, Fenton cast iron headers [dual exhaust], Weber cam, Mallory dual point [NOT SHOWN], bored, shaved head, etc.
Sold the baby Hemi, sold the sedan around 1965, bought a 39 Plymouth coupe.
Now have a 30 Ford pickup with a Blown sbc and a 4-speed, and a steel 41 Willy coupe with a Blown 468 Chevy, Gasser style.
Been driving the 30 for 50 years and the Willys for 24 years,
