There were some noteworthy new rides there, with incredible stories, or that were just unique. Such as, a set of Ford trucks, which is a father/son build and a 1959 Anglia. (Never have I seen one before, but someone came by and called it an English Ford).
I have been working on my own vehicles since I was a kid. I have always had an imagination, allowing me to think outside the box and make things my own, via customization, with little to no money. This truck has helped me learn many new skill sets with fabrication and welding.
I pounced in it when I saw it knowing it may take a few months or years before I would get to it.
In 1971 Ferree and his son installed a Chevy 327/350 with a 2B carburetor and manifold from a newly wrecked car, repainted the car while keeping the original black paint on the fenders. He then drove the car to Bonneville, Utah and also made 2 stops in California.
I bought it off of EBay for $99 with 320 watchers.
Well, another year has gone by and we have had some milestones happen. This has been a good year for us, so, in an effort to recap what has been happening, let’s look back at last years review.
I chose this vehicle because when I was 15, I a neighbor who had a 1940 Ford Coupe, black, 327, 4 speed with a Indian blanket interior. It was low, black and wicked. I wanted to build a similar car one day.
Once I had a product I believed in, at a price I felt is better suited to people like me, we ordered some. A LOT of hose and A LOT of fittings – probably too much but we believed so strongly that there is an opportunity for a High Quality PTFE braided hose in the market with awesome looking AN fittings that we committed to taking the idea forward.
