    1941 Ford Coupe Kirk - Valley Custom

    A Valley Custom Shop created Custom 1941 Ford that I had never seen or heard about before. The car o ...more

    wned by Kurt who was a merchant Marine and had the shop work on his car while he was out to sea. According Gary Emory this was the most radical 1941 Ford to leave the Valley Custom Shop ever… and yeah I think he is right here.

    The car is really radical. And unlike any other Custom Car created by this shop. The car has a wonderful mix of typical late 1940's early 1950's molded looks we are used to see from the Barris and Ayala shop and the subtile chances as the opened wheel opening, the raising of the fenders, the removal of the running boards and the leaned back windshield. All more subtile changes we are used of from the Valley Custom Shop. The business coupe (short doors) has been chopped really nice with a lid back windshield and very nice sloop on the rear portion of the roof, a perfect balance between the side and rear quarter windows and nicely rounded corners. I really like how the running boards and whole bottom of the main body has been removed and the fenders raised to sit at the same level as the now shorter body. The hood was sectioned accordingly. The fenders were welded solid and also had the crease hammered smooth and molded to the body. This all results in a very pleasing profile.
    Gary saw the car for the last time when he was 13-14 years old (1956-1957). The car was then painted white with a leopard skin motive seat covers. Unfortunately this is the only photo Gary has ever been able to find of this car. Does anybody know more about this car, what happened to it, or if it is still around. rikhoving@xs4all.nl
