1940 Ford four-door restyled by Eddie Paul of EP Industries in El Segundo, California. Much of the restyling on the car was documented in the book Eddie Paul's Custom Bodywork Handbook.[1]

In 2014 Matt Marquisee spotted the car the car in Lake Elsinore, California. It was sitting in a fenced enclosure, and it was hard to see if it was a new or an older build. There was a weathered "For Sale" sign on the fence, with no additional information. The heavily chopped sedan looked like a stranded project. It had an unique headlight treatment, and it looked like the original builder had visioned the car with some sorts of bumperettes. Matt contacted Kustomrama, who ran the car in their Lost and Found section in March of 2015. The car was identified the next day Zak T. Howell.
