I was looking through the February 1952 issue of "Auto Sport Review", a long defunct car magazine, and found an article titled "Hollywood Roundup": pictures of people like Clark Gable and Gary Cooper with their cars. To my surprise, I found this picture of Alan Young (a Brit-born actor, probably best known for his role in "Mr. Ed") with his customized Ford. Appears to be a '39 convert, chopped, channeled with the fenders raised and the hood sectioned, plus custom tweaks to the grille, bumpers, and so on. Certainly not a unique car for the era, but a nice one, and it's the earliest instance I can recall of an showbiz person driving a customized Ford. Rikster, have you seen this before?
