I'm surprised you didn't pick this one... being a Hawaii car.
another great one with what looks like a chevy grille....
I've featured this car before. Love it.
I've always loved this car (proportions are perfect), but think I would like it even more with a stock grille.
Looks like a 40 Buick grille to me, which is similar to Chevy.
In regards to the car in the post: I dig the back window in the soft top, you don't see that treatment very often
Though I enjoy mild, as far as custom/ competitive, Doug Rice's '39!
Oh yeah — that’s my vote!
Oh god. How could I forget? I LOVE that car.
Have never seen that before, more pic’s?
I try Google.
ohhh, lots to find!
Great choices here. Wasn't familiar with the Lellis car, it's a beauty.
Although it's a newer build, how might Pete Chapouris' purple, flamed '39 Ford convertible fit in here?

That maroon coupe is evil looking... I've tried to do that in plastic a couple of times
I remember seeing this on Hemmings a while back and being very intrigued. Here is the link. Im surprised its still active. Hemmings Find of the Day - 1939 Ford Model 18 | Hemmings
I really like channelled/sectioned '38-'40 Fords, Doug Rice coupe is just killer. I always preferred Jerry Moffatt convertible over Art Lellis convert, wish Lellis Ford would be restored to its '48 HRM version.

The maroon on that coupe is stunning.
