Recently spotted at a meet while on holiday in Florida. I'm not even sure what model Ford it is!



Anyone any ideas?

Regards

Has it got any suspension at all? I reckon with a chop top the whole thing would be lower than the Ford. Amazing!

I think it is based on a 51 coupe by the looks of it but its been very heavily customised. Screen and bonnet shape seem to remain but the bonnet edge has been modified as has the grill.
