1939 Ford Convertible owned by Kenny "KV" Controtto of South Gate, California. Kenny's convertible was restyled in the 1940s[1], and main modifications included a chopped windshield and a padded Carson style top. The running boards were removed and chrome panels installed on the leading edge of the rear fenders. Old photos shows KV's car running a 1939 - 1941 Lincoln Zephyr bumper up front and a rippled bumper at the rear. The license plate had been inset. Other notable custom accessories included fender skirts, dual spotlights and single flipper hubcaps.
