What started as a 1932 Ford 5 window coupe with a 23 stud flat-head V-8 engine, was found by Vern Rauch, Gene's brother, in a barn in Idaho in 2004. It was a complete and absolute "cherry" vehicle. However, the body was the prize that Gene needed for building his "ultimate" Street Rod. Gene had a Chrysler Hemi and he had the exceptional all steel original body. Next was to locate the best street rod chassis available and that search led him to T.C.I. Chassis in Ontario, California. Virtually everything else on the car is new and state of the art.
In addition to the flawless chassis, body, paint, etc., check out the upholstery/interior as it is second to none.
