1949 Ford Business Coupe Stormy
Before we tell you about this car, t is important to know that some great custom cars also have great heritage. If you study the history of customizing you will note that during every era there always seemed to be one famous customizer. George Barris was well known in the 1950s and 1960s, nd recently Boyd Coddingtonreceived much TV fame. Today one of the most recognized car customizers of course is Bo Huff. You will note that when a collector has a car that was done by a famous artiste/customizer they are always sure to let you know the provenance of the customizers. Bo has gained celebrity status in the custom car world. Bo's custom designs are highly detailed and express creative styling cues and are highly detailed out with amazing pin striping by his son, unior Huff. Junior is considered one of the premiere pin stripers of the day. If you would like a Bo Huff original we suggest that you read the rest of this ad and bid to win!

The Legendary Bo Huff is offering up one his personal favorites in this eBay listing.If you have ever dreamed of owning an original Bo Huff design, ere is your opportunity! Done in the old style tradition of customizers from the 1940s and the 1950s.This is a METAL car. This car is one of Bo Huff’s great works done in 2003 and was striped by his son, unior.The pinstriping on the car won Best Striping at the Salina, ansas KKOA, instriping done by Junior Huff. Mileage is less then a 1,000 miles since built in 2003. The hood and the trunk have round corners and the car is painted in acrylic lacquer in one of Bo’s favorite colors of Pearl Maroon.(There are a few chips here and there). This car has a 1980s Lincoln 460 engine and a Lincoln C4 transmission with a four-barrel carburetor.
The interior is pearl white tuck and roll, hifter in the center console.
The car has dummy spotlights.
The headlights and the taillights are frenched in the old style tradition.The grille is made up of 1951 Olds grille parts, ront bumper a 1951 Oldsmobile that has been narrowed to fit the Ford, 949 Mercury grille surround and the side trim has been modified from a 1957 Plymouth. The car handles exceptionally well and because it has a 1991 Mustang front end from the larger Mustangs that use the MacPherson strut setup. Just check out the interior.It is absolutely unbelievable with all the roll and tucking and center console and shift in the floor.The plastic control knobs on the dash topped off by plenty of pinstriping.Yes, his car could easily be mistaken as a historic custom from the early 1950s but the truth is that Bo Huff, he greatest master of old school customizing has just made it look that way. Bo Huff is probably the most famous current customizer who for personal reasons is selling one of his most favorite customized cars ever.When Bo did this car he did not do it for a customer he did it for his museum and planned to keep it forever.Yes, here is nothing that lends itself more to old style customizing then the basic 1949 Ford business coupe.
