    I can't remember if I had asked this question in the past....so I spotted this article on chopping a top and it looks like a car that was being posted that was to be auctioned off I believe it was purple? Or green? No purple? Anyways the article is in a Dec. 1988 Street Rodder Magazine "Chop a '40 sedan" I don't think the car is all'40 ....some '39 mixed in? I think the car is sooo KooL......[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

  5. Ya know rudestude I gotta say I think you’re right. The chop looks right as does the stance.

  12. Ford only built one, but there was a guy for a while selling fiberglass reproductions, primarily as a Batmobile copy, but he did offer the Futura trim (or most of it) if you wanted to build a clone. Copyright infringement over the Batmobile got him shut down... This looks like one of his copies. He never got any measurements off the actual car, he scaled his copy off photos so there's lots of little detail differences.

  16. I'm thinking it is the same car. The chop looks right and the fender skirts look the same.

    This '64 ford was an A-Bros. entry in the ford "Custom car Caraven".

    For those who are unaware, in the early sixties FMC commissioned the nation's top customizers to modify their latest offerings for national tours, billed as the 'Custom Car Caravan'. (Factory sponsorship was also a big factor in drag racing at the time.)
    i always dug the side vent detail!
