    Kustomland.. thank you for the kind words. It’s a labor of love and there are things I will do to it to bring it into more of a solid kustom realm. I will be getting the club plaque mounted soon as well. Ready for the kustoms of sandiego show on July 28th in Fallbrook,ca. The 41 is such an iconic ride used by many kustomizers like Jesse Lopez , Dick carter and  Ed Jacques. The shape has flow and style and that distinct Art Deco feel , which to me is essential.

    Paul, Funny you got your 41 near Kentucky,

    Because all this California dry car B.S is B.S ……. There are a lot of cars out there that were looked after and had the salt washed off or just never driven enough like your, 19,000 Miles original …Dang, It was driven only on a sunny day if you do the math…LOL….

    That 35 Ford is killer and looks sweet, I know it s a 5 window but they have there own unique look chopped and kustomized….. I my self bought my 1936 Ford 5 windo brand new off the show room floor in 2010.

    It was never sold and on the ELIZABETH TOWN  KENTUCKY vine grove FORD dealership….

    The family got 2 brand new in 1936, I old guy gave me a photo of him self beside the car as a teenager…

    He said the demon straighter 36 Ford was taken for a test drive with a customer and was hit T BONED and killed the guys uncle and the customer. So the family never sold mine and it sat all those years…..

    It took me for ever to persuade the family I would not hot rod it, Because every cow boy from  E TOWN to Louisville to Indiana knew about the 36 and for years people had tried to buy it…..

    I took the old guy for a drive and we drove around the back woods of E TOWN….

    Paul, I asked the old guy why the fenders were painted because they were not like that when I looked at buying it originally…. the old guy told me the fenders looked a bit to dull before I got there and he said he thought he would rattle can then for me to make the car look better…….Holey Crap I just about fainted when I saw what he had done….And told him to give me a can of thinners if he could and I spent 2 hours wiping off fresh flat back rattle can paint….. To make it even more funny I asked hi m why flat back….???

    He said well …He could not tell the difference and said ” WELL HENERY FORD ” painted every thing like that didn’t he….!!!

    I said fare enough …..LOL HAHAHAH

    The old guy was going to give me some extra paper work and dig it up for me after I left……

    He told me his father would take the car out once in a while in the 1950’s and he would stop at the top of the hill …..

    He asked his father why…..? Do you stop at the top of a hill ….His said his fathers reply was to give the engine a rest….!! I attributed this to his father in those days having a horse….I can only imagine there were not to many fords driving around E town in 1936 …..

    I wondered why he did not get back to me a month later and I was told by his wife he passed away a few days after I left…….

    Tho I drew a lot of static and heat from locals when they saw me picking it up with my tow truck and CALI plates…..One guy was so peeved he lived down the road and came down with a torrid of abuse because he had tried to buy the car for 40 years……

    Here are some of m y fav photos of the day I drove it with the old guy and picked it up…..The first photo is out the front of the dealership …VINE GROVE.

    Now Paul would you be leave after searching for 6 years for an original 36  3 windo I settled for a 5 window and some guy on Craig’s list  had a barn in Hollister C.A and it had a 36 roadster / 3 window / cabriolet / Phanton / and 5 window for sale  only 45 mins away……

    I could not be leave it when I saw the ad and the cars…..Sheech ……

    . Amazing story and what a beautiful ride!! I wouldn’t pass up any opportunity to have a 35/36 ford. These are historically important rides and they need to be protected and saved.  It’s better to have these rides in the hands of those who will give them respect ,I believe.  My 41 has no rust at all. It’s one of the most solid rides I have seen and owned. With 19,000 original miles it’s a time machine. It was so well looked after I feel extremely lucky and  greatful to have it and to tastefully kustomize it , paying tribute to those that have gone before me

    Paul you are spot on pal, 36 Fords are special …..100% correct that they represent KUSTOM, Because it was the that could be had the easiest by the poor guys who had no money but a vision of what it could be seen through a looking glass kaleidoscope of individualism…..I mean dang I love the BARRIS photo in SAC TOWN were his 1936 is being transformed from what he saw HARRY WESTERGARD showed him…….

    With this comment I always felt that if you are truly into a passion no matter what you must always try and have or own what ever the beginning was…..No matter what else you have….

    A 36 Ford should be the every mans 57 Chevrolet cough cough…..!!!

    My ORIGINAL BARRIS KUSTOMS OF LOS ANGELES PLAQUE in my AVATR was GEORGE BARRIS’S PERSONAL PLAQUE and I bought it from the guy who painted the BAT MOBILE…… He told me he liberated it because it was not worth anything in the 1960’s but was nice enough to take….

    When George Barris saw it at the 2011 NOW & THEN G.N.R.S he lost his sh#t…. He knew exactly what I was holding in my hand. Tho he was not surprised I some how had acquired it…..He wanted to know how and were I got it from…………  He straight up told me he would never speak to me again if I did not put it on my 1936 Ford….And he refused to sign it unless I kept my promise…..Every one was crapping there pants because he was already threating to not to sign sh%t….. As I managed to get him all worked up….

    Then I coped static all week end from some car clubs telling me they noticed I was spending to much time chatting up JOJI Barris………. I was accused of trying to make a pass on her so I could I could have the BARRIS cars for my self….

    Tho I  must say the chatting up JOJI was my plan but I did not relies I was so oblivious ….

    Sheech imagine that every one , Me going out with JOJI.. I could call myself  KUSTOMLAND BARRIS…..HAHAHAH

    …..I could lay in bed all nite taking so much BARRIS stuff  I could drive her BAT SHI$T crazy about her father…..!!!!

     

    I am so drawn to that BARRIS photo in SAC TOWN because even tho the car is not finished it is frozen in time and shows GEORGE BARRIS at his very beginning……And what he could see that we will never ……………

    As much as I wish to kustomize my 36 Ford with all the fads, Some times less is more…Like in your case with your 41 , It may not be a SNOOKY JANICH but it represents the beginning of a G.I. who was about to start his dream car….

    Paul did you notice in my photo I have a PINES WINTER FRONT GRILLE , This is what HARRY WESTERGARD used to do the front , Because if you look at BARRIS 36 FORD he has the PINES WINTER FRONT GRILLE …..!!

    So I would say he got that from some one and that some one is the main man WESTERGARD……!!!

    So im going to keep it like like that SANTA BARBARA 1936 Ford Rik keeps posting….. Using the PINES WINTER FRONT GRILLE and my set of CALIFORNIA KUSTOM DECO TRIM I found in SACRAMENTO…..

    Tho its a 5 window I want it to represent the beginning like that BARRIS PHOTO……..

    I wish Rik would do a story on my CALIFORNIA KUSTOM DECO TRIM…..!!!

    I’d be glad to tell some history and show some build pictures but I don’t want to butt in on ”San Diego ’41 Ford”.
