John Williamson's 1940 Ford
1940 Ford Convertible Sedan owned and restyled by John Williamson of Sunland, California. John's Ford was assembled from parts and pieces using a steel roof four-door sedan and tub parts from Miguel Torres. In 2017 John told Kustomrama that he cut the sedan apart leaving the cowl and the lower quarter panels, "then I added the convertible sedan windshield, doors seat back with the tub supports and tub doors and latches. I had to use the door bottoms from the sedan to fix the tub door bottoms. I round the decklid top corners and peaked the hood with the last part used to unlatch the stock 40 hood latch. Then I built the Carson Top frame from an original tub top assy, skinned it with aluminum and then hard foam and upholstery by North Hollywood Upholstery. I plan to paint it 41 Chevrolet Ruby Maroon and do the interior like the original Ray Vega tub in light tan with the seat tops embossed with the tooled flower pattern."
