Joe Briske's 1934 Ford
1934 Ford 3-Window Coupe built by Dave Puhl of House of Kustoms for Joe Briske of Joliet, Illinois in the 1960s. Dave sectioned the body of the coupe 4 inches before he chopped the top 4 inches and added a 6 inch channeling job. An off center asymmetrical aluminum stripe ran along the nose, across the top and down the deck. The nose piece was handmade from sheet stock, and it acted as a windbreak for a 1954 Chrysler 331 Hemi engine. An asymmetrical tubular grille was fit inside a duck tail like rear section. The body was painted in a wild Kandy Tangerine, and the undercarriage and visible portions of the powerplant was chrome plated. Once completed, the car, known as "The X Altered", did well on the show circuit.
At one point in the 1960s it had two blowers mounted on the Hemi engine.
The car was parked in Joe's garage in the early 1970s, and he kept on to it until 1998, when he sold it to his nephew Dan De Lara. Dan made the car drivable again, and it has been on the road since 2000.
