    Wayne Walker Sectioned 1939 Convertible

    The '39 was owned by Wayne Walker and built with his brother Harold's help. The brothers were from t ...more

    he Youngstown, Ohio area. They had been to California and saw a chopped and channeled custom ford convertible. Upon returning home they decided to customize Wayne's car. It's funny how stories get twisted and a trip to California turns into a California custom as the stories are repeated over time.

    Wayne and Harold started on the car in 1954 and finished it enough to drive by 1955. The car was channeled, 5 inches were removed from the hood and the fenders were raised. The '39 dash was removed and replaced with a '40 dash. The windshield was chopped 3 inches but the top and interior were never completed. A full race flathead was built for the car and it was painted '55 Cadillac Bahama Blue.

    Wayne ran the car around in this form until 1958 when he pulled the flathead to put in another car to go racing. The car sat in Waynes garage with no motor until Gus S. purchased the car in 1959. Gus never got the car back on the road. Gus' brother Pete S. had a '32 5w hot rod of his own that he raced on the weekends. In about 1964 Pete S. blew the rearend in the '32 drag racing it and parked it in the garage next to the '39.

    Over the years Gus passed away and left the '39 to his brother Pete S. The cars sat untouched in that garage until 2003. Thats when Pete Mallog convinced Pete S. to get the '32 road worthy and back on the street. In the process of working on the the '32 Pete Mallog talked Pete S. into selling him the '39.

    Once Pete Mallog got the '39 home he located a flathead and went over the brakes and rewired the car to get it on the road. Later on he had the interior done and made a top.
