1963 by my grandfather John J. Stevens Sr. His daughter Eunice (Stevens) Cooper inherited it in 1966 (I inherited it in 2002 and it has been in storage ever since)
I purchased it in 1971 late in the year. Drove it to school just after the Christmas break. It had approx 32,000 miles on it.
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 have always worked on cars and completed a few projects, but always wanted to build a classic car my way.
I found it in a field. I was 15 years old
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.
