    Don Britton Sectioned '50 Ford sedan

    49-50 Ford sedan was made using the wreck of one 49 and one 50 Ford sedan.
    Sectioned 4 inch and ve ...more

    ry nicely customized by Cuck Calvin according to some early 50's custom car publications. The car was painted a deep metallic dark green.
    However this car is also listed as the product of an 18 year old Sam Foose, who built the car for himself in 1951-52. Sam most likely sold the car to Don Britton.
    Later the car was repainted in white, or off-white and can be seen in the parking lot of the Barris Shop. Was it owned by one of the Barris employees?
