1939 Ford Convertible Sedan owned by John Williamson of Sunland, California. John's Ford was done at the Guildner brothers' shop after John got the car from the family of Milf Robbins in San Diego, California. After John sold the car, it was featured in Hop Up Magazine as the Dick Kraft car. John is not sure wether that is correct or not, when he got it, Milf Robbins had paperwork on it beginning in 1949. It was chopped in the 1940s and it had a flathead with column shift and a Columbia rearend with Zephyr gears when John bought it. John did most of the fabrication work, while the Guildenrs did the bodywork and paint. John owned the car for about 12 years before he sold it to Al McKee of Bass Lake, California. McKee sold it to a truckstop owner in the Washington state area. The truckstop owner sold it to a guy named Sid.[1] In 2011, while Sid owned the car, it was advertised for sale as the Dick Kraft car. The asking price by the was $64,995.00.[2]
