Bill Scown's 1934 Ford
1934 Ford Roadster restyled by Bill Scown of Hollywood, California. When Bill bought the car, the previous owner had started the basic body work. The car received a compact appearance by removing trim and filling in body components such as the hood nose, hood side panels, and deeply valanced rear fenders. A body panel was added between the fenders, changing the familiar appearance of the roadster. The stock taillights were replaced by 1938 Ford taillights, and the rear bumper was a Studebaker unit. Headlights from a 1940 Chevrolet were molded into the fenders. The alligator type hood opened from the front. The hood covered a mildly reworked 1946 Ford V8 engine with full compliment of added accessories. Once the bodywork was completed the car was painted in a bright red lacquer.
