Keith Hunt's 1952 Ford convertible of Salt Lake City, Utah. The car was already customized when Keith bought it in the Winter of 1956. It had been damaged at a used car lot, so Keith had Tanner Body Shop fix it up. The build was completed early in 1957. During the build, Keith became a member of the Falcons of Salt Lake City car club.

The Falcons was a car club from Salt Lake City, Utah. Early in 1957 Keith Hunt was accepted into the club, at the time, Kent Lee was the President, and Dick DeKorver was the Secretary. Kent and Dick were cousins, and according to Keith they WERE the Falcons; "In a way we were all equal, but as saying goes, they were more equal than the rest of us. Kent was our leader. Dick was second in charge." Norman Tyrrell was the Vice President. The Falcons sometimes met in in Liberty Park on Sunday afternoons, but their spot was the Cummings Ice Cream store, which had the largest malts in Salt Lake City.[1]
