    Neat car. Interesting to have all that chrome interior garnish and stuff on a car that is only very mildy customized, where as now that would be extremely pricey to have done and would probably only go on a much wilder custom. Really shows how cheap it was to have that stuff done years ago.

    I am going to keep it as close to what it is now as possible I like it's originality I believe the paint is original although worn ,who wouldn't be worn at 77 years old . but I like the thin whitewalls ,Appleton spots and trippe beam fogs missing from pics is blue dot taillight lenses . need face for radio and other small parts. hoping this will make a cool driver .
     
  11. Nice car, that thing is a time capsule. Glad you're not planning to try to make it into something it's not. Heck yeah it'll make a cool driver.

    Good luck on the build

    Thanks Mo, unfortunately when Photobucket started charging people to share with third party sites all the pictures are gone for anyone else to see. Here are a few shots of it.

    That is a nice 41 you have there. I have been looking for that dash trim, but it is expensive when you do find it.

    Don't know which car you're specifically referring to, but both look like totally factory original grills and surrounds to me.

    Those chrome dash pieces are eastern auto supply add on pieces from the late forties. I have one on my 41 coupe kustom. They are rare and hard to come by although I know the early ford store has two attached to two separate dashes.. he didn’t know what they were until I told him
