Bear with me on this, as the end result is definitely worth sticking around for. A little over 12 months ago myself and my business partners had the privilege of displaying some products at the Grand National Roadster Show. I’d been to the states a number of times previously but never had the chance of attending the GNRS. To say I was blown away was an understatement, the size and quality was breathtaking. What really got me though were the customs, more specifically a certain black, Carson topped 38 cabriolet parked in front of the suede palace. I love my Roadster, but it’s raw, bare bones hot rod. This custom spelt out class, real Hollywood golden era style. From that point on I was hooked. Fast forward 2 weeks and I was back in Melbourne, Australia. I had a deuce 5 window that I was collecting parts for to begin the build but this custom stuck in my mind. Trolling through Instagram one afternoon and I come across a 41 convertible for sale, built by Grant Maclean in North Queensland, about 2000kms from me. One thing led to another and the deal was done, the deuce to be sold to pay for the 41. Grant’s vision was the same as mine, a period perfect 40’s custom, so I’ve left the car in Grants care while he continues the transformation. Anyway, all this work is Grants, i haven’t physically touched the car yet, a constant stream of updates and pics and kept the excitement going. Anyway, I’ll post some pics, sit back and enjoy a true craftsman work. Saying good bye to the deuce Sent from my iPhone using H.A.M.B.
