Al and Dave Tarkanyi's 1932 Ford
1932 Ford 3-Window Coupe originally owned and built by Jim Root. Jim sold the coupe to Downriver Modified members Al and Dave Tarkanyi of Dearborn Heights, Michigan in the mid 1950s. Al and Dave were brothers. Their coupe was heavily chopped and channeled, and they ran it without hood and fenders. Power came from a 296 cu. inch. Ford Flathead V-8. In 2014 Al still owned the old coupe.
In March of 2015 Al showed the coupe at the 63rd annual Detroit Autorama.
