James J. Pacera's 1949 Ford
1949 Ford Tudor Sedan restyled by Don's Custom Shop of Pico, California for James J. Pacera of Montebello, California. James' Ford was cleaned for foor door handles and trunk handle, the hood was nosed, louvered, and had its corners rounded. The doors were electrically operated with push-buttons. The front end was restyled by frenching the headlights and installing a 1953 Oldsmobile grille in the custom made grille shell. The bumpers were stock, however they were rechromed and had their guards removed. The rear fenders were modified with custom fender shrouds which featured custom taillights. The unusual two-tone paint job of Titian red and white was separated with side trim from a 1956 Ford. James brought the finished car over to Dean Jeffries in Compton to have it striped. Dodge Lancer hubcaps were installed as a final touch.
