I've always had a thing for this car.
AND a chromed tow bar made of what appears to be radas rods!!
What's not to like,having owned several 40's over the years I honestly believe they are as iconic as a Deuce. HRP
Great post! I would build that same style today. Love the Forties!
I usually like black and white photos, but damn, I wish these were in color!
One that has stuck in my mind since my youth, and that was a long time ago.
One of the best '40 Fords ever. Now .... where is it ?
For sure! 40's rule and this is a great example.
That is a beautiful car and I also wish those pics were in color. Nicely done with the Sublime reference.
The answer to your question is Joe Barnett's car. I've had a thing for it and 40s in general ever since I first saw it in The Rodder's Journal about 15 years ago. http://www.jalopyjournal.com/forum/attachments/03-24-4-jpg.2835039/
Nice little '40, neat, simple and pretty basic. This could be recreated for a reason price even today!
One of my favorites also. I remember looking at this in my dads Hot Rod rag as a kid.
I was following this car a couple of years ago,but I didn't want an SBC....
I built the car above in 2003-drove it all over and took to Cruise Paradise in Hawaii in 03-sold it in 06 went to LA then it was at Canepa's where this photo was taken--think it's in the central SanJoaquin Valley somewhere now--maybe Los Banos
I drooled over my keyboard many a night.The SBC was the killer,but now I'd probably be OK with it because of the reliability factor.
have done 13 since that one-- currently have the dlx here and a std coupe as well--must be crazy huh???
