I should get back to working on my '48 sedan delivery soon....gave 'er shit 'till November
It says Jack Bright owned it BEFORE Lee, Then It says Lee Bright built it? what is the REAL story.
What happen to Lee Bright? >>> Was he related to Jack Bright. >>Where is Jack? I don't know JACK !!!
A station wagon, as good as it looks, is NOT a sedan delivery... IMO
does not have single door in back
this Sedan Delivery came from around the Long Beach, Ca area.... anyone remember it ?
Here's mine I built years ago. It started out as a 31 Ford slant window 4 door sedan. I sold it about 10 years ago and lost touch with it.
Panel Debate 1957 Chevy
Here is an SD that recently came to a friend's junk yard. According to Rocky, a 1942.
anyone have a 49-52 chevy SD within 150 mi. radius of Pittsburgh for sale?
I have not been without a 1940/41 Ford sedan delivery for 51 years....
I had my sedan delivery for 50years and it was bought new at Ed Marr Ford in downtown Dallas. I just need to redu it.
I love the green and black, mine is red
This one is for short deliveries only
We were fortunate enough to meet Lee at a San Diego Prowler's Picnic. He was a very talented builder and total nice guy. He even tried to vouch for me when we were in negotiations for a 46 yellow woody being sold from a San Diego dealer of old cars. That dealer knew Lee, but still would not cash an out of town check for $2600. We were “out of towners,” being from Long Beach. Lee was ticked off at that dealer from that time on until...
He wanted his sedan delivery in a magazine and we just happen to get down to San Diego to check out the Prowlers Picnic and cars for a possible connection. What a connection it was! The North Orange County and LA car magazines did not venture that far south in those days. I do not know why...
Being at the right time and place was excellent for me. I took quite a few shots, gave away a ton of photos and of course, the hot rod guys purchased some to keep my photo business going. The chopped sedan delivery was very well built, and had all of the latest stuff including that great looking Jag rear end. The Prowler's were/are in their element and this delivery was one of the top cars in that group as far as I was concerned.
It was in a magazine and after the crash, he build a very cool looking 40 Ford Sedan Delivery. My "liking" sedan deliveries goes back to owning 2 of them, but this 29 chopped delivery had the look and the stance of something mean coming down the street. It is too bad that the car was totaled.
You need to come down for the last Prowlers picnic this year. After 70 years the club is hanging it up. There will still be a club, but no more picnics. It will be the next weekend following the LARS.
Yes, I have been invited to the last picnic by the Prowlers. It is on my calendar. Plus, it is an hour drive to the picnic, so that is not too bad. I will definitely try to make it, but you never know about family stuff that always pops up. Looking forward to it and it is marked on my calendar. They have been great to me and the friendships that have come and gone.

I learned, at the Prowlers Picnic, that Lee Bright's '29 Delivery is alive and well, and apparently living in seclusion up in the bay area. Too bad, it needs to be out "prowling".
i understood it was a total.?
The fellows I talked to said it was rebuilt to original, including the Skylark wires. The owner just doesn't drive it. So now I wonder what is the real story??
what caused Lee's death ?
Good question. I only inquired about what became of the delivery.
Fat Jack owned the body in the early 80's...
I took this picture of a sad 40 Chevy last summer. It was in the back junkyard lot of “Doug’s 4 Wheeler’s” just outside of Pella Iowa. I’m sure it could be bought. But he probably wants way more than it’s worth since everything he has is over priced.
I recently heard Lee Bright was killed in Oregon in a '40 yellow sedan delivery..
I was in the Muffler business, (so was Lee, rumors abound in ANY business. )
does that ring any bells?
Been a while, anymore out there ?
Well I don't know Joe, you have something you want to tell us ?
Newest 1 in my barn
Not the best picture. 47 Chev I built back in the 80's , 46 front end ,2 door doors that were 10 5/8 in longer so my kids could get in the back. Owned for over20yrs.
