For quite a few years I knew that the George Janich — later owned by his nephew Paul aka Snooky — Janich had survived and was slowly being restored by George Mallory and his twin brother Steve. But when Axle announced his "Customs Then & Now" gathering to be held at the GNRS in 2011. Steve and George got very much inspired to get the car ready for this special event. So they made a new schedule and figured it would be hard work to get the car done in time for the Show in January, but they both agreed it needed to be done, and this was the perfect reason to get it done. The car in its glory days. To find out more more about the history of the Snooky Janich 1941 Ford read the article from Sondre on the KustomRama Site. Here are a few photos that Steve send me of the car as it is been taken apart. Its very interesting to see so many similarities between this 1941 Ford and the Jack Stewart 1941 Ford that was built mostly by the Ayala's. And which is being restored at the same time. Photos from KustomRama Photos by Steve Mallory The same black tar like material as was found on the Jack Stewart 1941 Ford. The photo below and above show — if you look carefully — that the car has been further customized at one point. In the rear quarter somebody apparently added twin sunken antennas and they used the famous Buick Portholes (or perhaps just round tubing cut on an angle) to create the hole in the body. At a later point the holes where closed up again. Fresh brand new white wall tires.. waiting for the wheels and HUBCAPS Steve and George had been hunting for parts for the car ever since they owned the car since the early 1970's. Most of the hard to find parts have been found, but a few key parts are still missing. The long factory accessory 1941 model only fender skirts are still missing. but those can be made if none can be found. But the most important missing parts are the hubcaps. And we need your help finding them! I have searched everywhere, and I just cant come up with a photo of a similar set of hubcaps. The full moon is possibly a separate part from the trim ring, but it could as well be a since piece hubcap as well. The trim ring looks to be very wide at the edge. Something I have never seen on any other car, stock Hot Rod or custom. We know that the car was built in 1948, but the photos seen here where taken in either the late 1940's or early 1950's. I know Barris offered a few custom full moon hubcaps in those days, but on the copied catalog I have its hard to see if it is a set of those. So if anybody has ever seen any of these, or has an idea what was used to create them? please let us know.
