'38 Ford Standard



The license plate on this '38 Ford reads 'DADSROD'. The reason for this is that the car's a family heirloom - bought by the current owner's father in 1965, it was a staple of family life in the following decades. The Standard passed from father to son in the mid-nineties, at which point it began the radical transformation into what you now see before you: a Candy Tangerine brute from the gangster era, resplendent in chrome gills and chunky running boards. It's had a 4" roof chop, there's a considerable hike in under-bonnet firepower, and the interior is gorgeously luxurious. A fitting conclusion for a beloved family member.
