Jerry Halak's 1958 Ford
1958 Ford Convertible owned and restyled by Pharaohs member Jerry Halak of Toledo, Ohio. Restyled in 1958, it only took 42 days and $500 to transform Jerry's convertible into a nice custom. Jerry kept the body mostly stock, but removed most of the chrome trim on the car including the door handles. Doors and trunk were electrically operated. The side trim was stock. Full length lakes plugs, dual spotlights and special hubcaps were added. In the rear Jerry swapped the stock bumper for a 1957 Ford unit. The taillights were composed of 1958 Lincoln taillight lenses trimmed to fit in the stock position. Once the bodywork was done the car was painted Ivory with gold scallops.
Halak upholstered the car himself in gold and white Naugahyde. Fur-like rugs covered the floor.
