    I am looking for information and more pictures of "The Dreamster"

    here is what I know about the car so far.

    This 1934 Ford hot rod roadster is owned by Kent Jonsson (from Sweden). Kent built it with Ulf Bolumlid
    Kent says, that Dreamster’s body lines were inspired by Delahayes Teardrop which by many is consodered to be one of the most beautiful cars. Kent’s roadster is hand crafted from carbon fiber and fiberglass. Basically, they started with 4 wheels and engine (injected 307 from Chevy) and built it from scratch. It took 9 years to complete the car.
    This 1934 Ford Roadster features TH700 automatic transmission, air suspension, rear axle from Jaguar.


    I would love to see some build pics and a good profile shot of the car.
    would love a list of all the body modifications. fenders used, channeled? sectioned? how much the wheelbase was stretched….etc.

    below are all the pictures I could find of the car.

  3. I wonder what makes it a 1934 Roadster if it was built from fiberglass and scratch.

    Probably because the owner says it is. That's good enough. No different than all the glass 32 fords sporting aftermarket everything. Or all the Model A's being held together with Chinese patch panels.

    I like it a lot, if you had said it was made of steel there there is no way to tell it isn't from looking at the photos. Bob

    Very cool, in an over done sort of way. Kind of like a tasteful version of some of the customs coming out of Japan. In my ever so humble opinion.
