Based on: Valley Custom 1940 Ford
This convertible has a long and well documented history as a custom that began in the early 1950‘s. Originally built by Neil Emory and Clay Jensen of Valley Custom for Ralph Jilek. The car was a popular and influential custom that graced the cover of Hop Up magazine. The body was chopped, channeled, and sectioned, as well as receiving fully radiused wheel wells and a sectioned hood. A low, white leatherette Carson padded top complimented the white tuck and roll interior and nicely contrasted the black lacquer paint. This piece of history is being treated to a complete restoration and will compete in the new early custom car class at the prestigious Pebble Beach Concours de’Elegance. SAR has been enlisted to perform all body and paint work in preparation for the elite competition of the Concours.
