I love bare metal cars that Steve Coonan features in Rodders Journal. My obsession with perfect metal work can really be appreciated when viewing a bare metal car. I don’t have a lot of them in my library, so I use pictures people send me or ones from the Internet. The Jalopy Journal had an almost bare metal Tudor that I fell in love with yesterday and I will show you that today. If you like tech articles, please do yourself a favor and join the Jalopy Journal. If anyone has any bare metal or primer and bare metal cars, please send them to me and I will feature the car. I know they eventually get painted, but they look good in the “body in White” department. This is a manufacturing term used when the body is ready for paint.
Forty Ford coupes are real popular and much more available than Deuces, but have appreciated greatly in the past 3 years. Lou has found himself one that looks very nice. Lou has been looking for a long time and finally found his dream. I mention this, to encourage all of you not to give up your search for your dream car. They can be purchased for a reasonable amount if you continue to search and advertise.
