Johnny Otis' 1932 Ford
1932 Ford Sedan owned and built by Flywheels Auto Club member Johnny Otis of Braintree, Massachusetts. The build was started by Tiny Brown in 1953. Tony sold it to Johnny in 1956. As Johnny was starting a family at the time, he wanted to have room for everyone, and decided to base his build on a sedan. Johnny's sedan featured a 1955 Chevrolet 265 engine with a tri carb set up. In 1963, Johnny's sedan was featured on the cover of Car Craft August 1963.
After holding on the car for almost 40 years, Johnny sold the tudo in 1989. The car was sold to Tiny Brown, who Johnny originally bought it from in 1956. The car swapped hands again, and was sold to another guy in Massachusetts. It went out of state, and it was sold to Idaho, Washington and Texas before it ended up in California.
