1934 Ford 5-Window Coupe owned and restyled by Ola Olsson of Sweden. Ola bought the car in Los Angeles in 1977. It was powered by a 327 Chevrolet engine with a Powerglide and a Oldsmobile rear-end. He got it driveable, and drove it across the continent to St. Paul, Minnesota. Ola was the first Swede with his own car at a Nats, and he received a lot of publicity at the trip. It was a trip he never forgets, and in 2014 he told Kustomrama that it broke about once a day. The distance from Los Angeles to New York was 47 000 miles. He brought the coupe with him to Sweden. In 2015 the car was still located in Sweden, painted black.
