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
