Lost and Found | Wisconsin

1932 Chevrolet coupe owned by Road Gents of Beloit member Norman Kopp of Beloit, Wisconsin. Originally owned and built by Norman's brother, the coupe was fully chopped, channeled and fendered. The radiator was lowered, and the hood was lengthened. Painted in a dark blue color, the coupe was powered by a Pontiac V8 engine with a factory fuel injection. The engine was hooked to a Packard three-speed stick transmission. The interior was done in tuck and roll black Naugahyde, including the rumble seat. The original canvas top inset was replaced with a removable snap-on roof. In 2017 Norman told Kustomrama that the first running completion was in 1958, "then it evolved to the form in the pictures in 1961."[1]


Where is it now?

Norman sold the coupe about 1964. He can't rember who he sold it to, or where it went, but for some reason he believes it went to someone in Illinois. Norman is currently looking for his old coupe, so if anyone have any info about it to share, please get in touch with Kustomrama at mail@kustomrama.com.
