    The accent chrome on the fenders and the '48 Ford bumpers set off my Uncle's car from other chopped '41 Fords, then and now. Unfortunately, later owners of the car removed those chrome trim pieces and changed the bumpers. Christopher Jones

    This 40 Ford convert belonged to Al Beckman, and was one of the nicest versions of its kind. I think that Al lived in Pasadena, but not sure.

      Al lived In Glendale and moved to Van Nuys in the late 50s. He passed away in 1974 and his wife still lives in the same house. He was my uncle...

    The spinner caps give this otherwise stock looking 39 a subtle custom look.  I've got a black 40, nosed/decked but otherwise stock, red wheels like yours but w/40caps and rings.  I like the red striped bumper tie in with the wheels

    Nice old school custom.  I like the original bumper better than an obligatory ribbed wrap around.

    The caps, teardrops and skirts (and of course lowered) give this otherwise stock 40 a custom look without sacrificing beautiful originality.  I've got one like it, but nosed (speed line is intact down to top of grille), no skirts, 40 caps/rings.  Put the antenna up at car shows!

    Nice chop, 39 headlights are a smooth custom look, appreciate the non-cookie cutter skirtless rendition, I think a stock 40 Merc or Lincoln Zephyr bumper would be preferable to the nerfs.

    Sectioned hood gives it a 1st generation Lincoln Continental look.
