THE JOHNSON SPECIAL
This early 1950’s Chopped Kaiser was build by the Johnson Motor Company in Headland, Alabama, hence the name The Johnson Special
Mano Forsman from Sweden is a great fan of Kaiser custom cars and Mano has been sharing material with the Custom Car Photo Archive for many years. Mano just send the Custom Ca Chronicle some scans of this really nice early/mid 1950’s Post Card. Mano purchased the card in 1993 from a guy in the US who had received this card from the owner’s son.
We really like the Post Card, and even though we were not able to find any information on The Johnson Motor Co. nor this particular Kaiser Custom we still wanted to show this amazing post card here on the CCC.
Hopefully some readers will recognize the car, or perhaps have heard from the Johnson Motor Co. in Headland, Alabama and can provide us with some more information.
The Kaiser custom looks to be very nicely done with a good looking chop and nice stance. So apparently the unknown shop knew what they were doing. And they also spend some money on having the full color Post Card produced back in the day. That must have cost them some money. Perhaps it was done to promote the shop at a early/mid 1950’s custom car show.
Thanks to Mano for sharing the car, and hopefully we will be able to ad more info about the car or the shop in the near future.
