1928 Ford Model A coupe owned by Janne Rådström. The car was built on a 1932 Ford frame,[1] and according to Lars Brandow, the original builder was a fellow named Sven.[2]


1968 Hot Rod Show

In 1968 the car was shown at the Hot Rod Show in Stockholm.

Further history

Sometime after that it was sold to Staffan Runhag. It was still blue when Staffan owned it. Staffan wrote himself an article in Colorod 8 1977 about the car and the modifications he did at that time. The rear fenders was widened 6 cm to cover the new 10" wide chromed spoke wheels.


A photo of the car in bits and pieces appeared in Start & Speed Magazine in the 1970s. Bengt Petterson of Linköping was the current owner, and he had just bought it when the story was made. Parts for the build at the time included a chromed and 2.5 inch dropped front axle, Volvo disc brakes, a Lincoln three-speed transmission, and a 1951 Mercury V-8. The engine had been hopped up with Edelbrock heads and a three-carb Edelbrock intake-manifold. Due to the 1932 Ford frame, the car was in 1988 titled as an "Amatörbygge." Bengt still owned the car in 2019.
