I know there many things I have left out, but I think you get the overall flavor of this one of a kind Custom. This is truly a car that needs to be seen by a person that understands and appreciates vintage customs and quality metalwork. First time out won Best of Show in 2019. I can pretty much guarantee you won’t park next to another one at any show.
Harbor Hot Rod’s specialization is 1932,1933 and 1934 ford steel coupes. I would consider partial trades if you have one. I am asking 45,500 (and worth every penny) but am willing to discuss.
