Some of you knew my brother Steve Hendrickson, He worked for Street Rodder in the late 80's, Then moved back to Minnesota to raise a family and during this time he worked for Rodder's Digest and Motorbooks, and Cartech. He was diagnosed with MS and Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma and passed away in June of 2006, leaving his wife Becky and two boys Mark and Scott. As often the case things go on hold, the cars were stored. Time does have a way of healing. Recently Becky decided it was time to plan for the future and sell Steve's cars, which included the 32 three window a 1960 Austin Healey Bugeye Sprite and a 1954 Chevrolet Pickup. I really wanted to keep the 32 in the family, and after some discussions Becky agreed to sell the car to me, as well as a lot of parts that Steve had accumulated over the years. The story on the 32 starts in the early 1990's while Steve was working for Rodders Digest with his office in White Bear Lake. He often stopped at a convenience store for a Soda or Coffee and a young worker noticed his Rodders Digest T-shirt and asked if he was "into street rods" then asking Steve what a 32 Ford three window was worth, and that his Uncle had one for a very long time. Steve said he would like to check it out, and continued to stop and visit, and one day he was able to make and apppointment. To his surprise the car was located on a farm that had been fully surrounded by retail development, and the car was located in an actual chicken coupe, slightly bigger than '32, and only a stones throw from a major interstate. After some lengthy negotiations with kids Uncle, Steve became the owner of the 32. Steve wrote a short article about finding the car in the April 92 Rodders Digest issue 47 Here are some photo's of photo's, as most of these are on slides. These that were taken the day the car was removed from the Chicken Coupe after sitting 27 years since it was parked in 1964. First time out of the coupe in 27 years This would qualify as a "shit eating grin" I don't think he cares that his boot is untied. Check out the plated column, the glove door (missing in the photo but was in the car) is plated, as well as the windshield side trim. Steve posing with the 32 after loading it on the trailer. Needless to say he was one happy guy. This car sat for 27 years, and Steve was interested to find more history about the car. Station identification while photobucket does maintenance..
