Ola's 1933 Ford 5-Window Coupe was built in Canada, and it was a right hand driver. This photo was taken right after Ola had given it a hand-painted grey two-tone paint job about 1963 - 1964. Photo courtesy of Ola Hegseth.
An early photo of Per Ivar Kolgrov's 1948 Mercury convertible of Oslo, Norway. Per Ivar's Mercury was restyled around 1963/1964 making it one of the first custom cars of Norway. Photo courtesy of Ola Hegseth.
A late photo of Per Ivar Kolgrov's 1948 Mercury convertible, taken after it had received "BL" license plates. Norway started using double letters in their license plates in 1971, so this photo has to be taken after 1971. This version of the car featured four 1959 Cadillac taillights instead of the 6 taillights Per Ivar initially installed. Photo courtesy of Ola Hegseth.

If you are from Norway, and you are into old Ford's, chances are that you have heard about Ola Hegseth. Ola is a prominent figure in the classic Ford scene in Norway, and he has been the Chairman of the Early Ford V8 Club chapter of Norway for almost as long as I have been a member. What very few people know about Ola, is that he has his roots back to the hot rod scene of Oslo in the 1960s. Today Ola's pride and joy is a rare New Era Motors built 1934 Ford Sedan, one out of three known still in existence. Ola has shared his old photo album with Kustomrama, and we are proud to let you all have a glimpse of what went on in Oslo back then.
