Custom 1929 Ford Sedan – lots of custom details

Style line, tail lights, transmission tunnel, gas tank, and interior belt-line

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, California.  We had a display of custom 1932 Ford hoods with sides and an aluminum radiator shell which caught the owner’s eye.  Straightaway, he knew he would need a lengthened hood for his 1929 Ford Sedan to accommodate 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.  Hence this led him to request grafting in Lexus trunk lights, a complete custom all-steel interior.

Keep scrolling to 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.   Also, follow along with the detailed operations and build process will be written up in future blog posts. Here we show the first steps to completion of this truly one-of-a-kind 1929 Ford Sedan.
