Dustin Corl's 1941 Ford
1941 Ford Business Coupe owned by Iron Lords member Dustin Corl of Salisbury, North Carolina. When Dustin got the car, it was rust free and in a good condition. In April of 2015 fellow Iron Lords member Jeremy Minamyer of Minamyer Customs started chopping the top on the Ford. Dustin and Jeremy's vision was to build the car like an early Barris custom. In 2015 Jeremy told Kustomrama that he wanted the car closely aligned to George Janich's 1941 Ford business coupe, without building a clone of the old custom; "I want to lay the A-pillars back a few degrees to keep the quarter window from getting too small. Aside from that, it will get a good chop with straight B posts." Before the chop started, Dustin lowered the car up front by installing an old dropped axle and a reversed eye spring. In the rear, the crossmember was flattened. Jeremy took 4 1/2" out of the A-pillars, and 6 1/2" out of the back of the roof during the chop. The A-pillars were laid back pretty hard and the windshield was raised 1" into the roof for Dustin's line of sight.
