We met the owner, a well known rally ace from New Zealand now residing in Southern California, back in late 2008 at the Derelict Donuts weekly car meetup in Huntington Beach,CA. We had a display of custom 1932 Ford hoods with sides and an aluminum radiator shell which caught the owner’s eye. He knew he would be in the market shortly for a lengthened hood for his 1929 Ford Sedan to accommodate a customization to full Lexus running gear. After completing the first task of making a custom lengthened hood for the 1929 Ford Sedan, he asked if it was possible to continue the three quarter height style line up and over the roof line. This turned out great and led him to request grafting in Lexus trunk lights, a complete custom all steel interior, and so on.
Take in the photos of the highlights of this custom Ford build, including a full handcrafted metal sculptured interior and an exterior electric rear window. The detailed operations and build process will be written up in future blog posts; showing the first steps to completion of this truly ‘one of a kind’ 1929 Ford Sedan.
