The Ayala/Barris build 1941 Ford coupe for Jack Stewart (later owned by Jim Street and Bob Drake) arrived at Rotterdam in the Netherlands last week. On Friday the car was transported to Amsterdam, and today it was picked up from Amsterdam... The "bad" thing about this is that - by now - the car has already left the Netherlands again. On a car transport to be delivered at the new owners home in Denmark. It all began on April 23nd when I was tipped that the Jack Stewart 1941 Ford was on ebay, for a good price. I went online and looked for it... and there it was. With a buy it now price on it. I knew my friend Palle from Denmark was looking for a great custom car. So I emailed him the link to the auction. A few hours later he replied back and mentioning he had pushed the "Buy it Now" button. He had bought the car... and his mind was spinning!!!. Palle had dreamed about owning a historic custom car like this, but he never thought he would be able to realize that dream. It took a few weeks to sort out a few things, among others the car was registered as a 1972 Ford!!!. Most likely the new date on the title was given to the car after Bob Drake had finished the complete restoration in 1972. Anyway the date had to be changed back to 1941 because importing a car from 1972 to Europe would be far more expensive than one from 1941! But the second week of May all lights where turned green and the car was ready to go. Getting ready to be put on the boat to The Netherlands. (photo by the US shippers) The photos below are taken after the car was delivered in Rotterdam, and trailered to Amsterdam where the shipper had their warehouse. And these photos where taken this morning. My friend Palle picked me up early in the morning after he drove from Denmark to my place.. and on our way we went to Amsterdam (another two and a half hour drive from where I live). As mentioned above the car is already on its way to Denmark... and in this photo is was pulled inside the truck. Palle, the new owner is on the far right. The two guys in the black jackets are the truck drivers who will bring to car to its new home.. and the guy scratching his head is from the shipping company who could not really understand this car at all. Yep its dragging Palle!!! but only the pipes. Bye.... for now... So what's next! Palle plans to do a complete restoration on the car. Strip it back to bare metal, and get every body panel in perfect condition again. This car has been rebuilt in 1972.. and really is in need of a full restoration. We are trying to find out as much info on this car as possible. The car is rather well written up in magazines and books. But there is always more infomation to be found. I already talked to Jim Street about the time he owned the car, and he will supply some old photos of the time when he had the car. We have contact information for Both Bob Drake and Jack Stewart which Palle hopes to speak as soon as possible. We know the car was featured in a early 70's Street Rodder magazine and the article showed how Bob Drake restored the car. It also showed how the car looked after it was hit by a train (after Jim Street had sold it). But we do not know which month this article was in.. so if anybody here has some early 70's (most likely 1972) issues of Street Rodder magazine, please take a look and see if you can find this article. And let us know the year/month and/or scan it to be shared on here. Also anybody with any more info or photos of this car... please share on here, or send an email to Palle firstname.lastname@example.org , so that we can get the full history on this car gathered.
