It looks like Bob could have been inspired by cars such as the Southern California Plating Company's 1931 Ford Model A delivery truck when he restyled his roadster.

1932 Ford Roadster owned by Bob Hart of Nassau, New York. Bob's roadster is an early east coast custom car built between 1938 and 1939.[2] Custom modifications includes fender skirts, a narrow grille and repositioned headlights. The windshield looks very much like a boat windshield or a Hallock Windshield, and it looks like Bob could have been inspired by cars such as the Southern California Plating Company's 1931 Ford Model A delivery truck and the Fords built by Brewster & Co when he restyled his roadster. In 1948, a small photo of Bob's roadster was published in Hot Rod Magazine December 1948, by then the car had been fit with a 1946 Mercury engine and hydraulic brakes.
