Chris and Jeni Johnson's 1951 Ford
Down in Southern California, the guys from the Emperors helped finish the body mods before Johnny Aguirre laid a 1939 Mercury Yosemite Green paint. Kyle Martin of Martin Kolor & Style sanded and buffed the paint out to perfection afterward.
After the body had been painted and buffed, Chris upholstered the car in distressed Sierra Green and Ivory marine vinyl with Olive square loop carpet. Chris is an upholsterer by trade, running Johnson's Kustom Upholstery.
The build took 5 1/2 years, and Chris' originally tried to get the car ready for the 2016 Customs by the Sea car show in Pismo, California. He did not make the show, and the car made its debut at the 2017 Grand National Roadster Show instead.
