1929 Ford Model A Roadster built by Barris Kustoms for Chuck Kirkorian. The car was also known as the Emperor. Chuck's roadster featured a hand-formed grille, deck lid, and rear pan to fit the taillights, which were surrounded by a miniature version of the grille up front. Chuck wanted a fendered rod, so the car was fit with small fenders featuring tapered fins.
