Joe "Bud" Simmons' 1936 Ford 3-Window Coupe
1936 Ford 3-Window Coupe owned by Throttle Benders member Joe "Bud" Simmons of Chowchilla, California. Established in 1949, Bud was a founding member of the Throttle Benders. According to his grandson, Brian Burnham, the '36 was Bud's pride. Photos taken in 1949 show it running a filled roof, solid hood sides, dual spotlights, fenderskirts, and flipper caps. Unfortunately, the car was totaled by a drunk driver shortly before Bud left for Korea in 1950.
