History: In building this coupe the idea was to be very accurate to the late 1940’s-early 50’s hot rod era. Every mechanical item on the car has been rebuilt to a very high standard. The bottom of the car and chassis have been sandblasted and painted in epoxy paint. The suspension components have been powder coated. The body paint is old with some flaws but deliberately left this way so as to maintain a wonderful period patina. All plumbing is new as is the cloth covered wiring.
