Lloyd Bakan's 1932 Ford
1932 Ford 3-Window Coupe owned by Lloyd Bakan of Eagle Rock, California. The car was initially built by Roger Long in the early 1950s. While Long owned it, the coupe appeared in Fawcett Book 189 Best Hot Rods in 1953.
Sold to Bakan
In the late 1950s Bakan sold the coupe to Richard Strock, from Southgate, California. Strock commisioned Dean Jeffries to pinstripe it. George Barris and Junior Conway applied gold scallops. This version was shown at the 1960 National Roadster Show in Oakland, California.
Restored by Don Orosco
The car changed hands several times after that. First to Steve Gilligan, then John Potter. Jim Donovan also owned it for a time before it ended up with Don Orosco. Orosco had the car restored, and Olle Eriksson spent a ton of time repairing the body. The restoration was performed by Olle, Brad Hand and Jesse Cruz.
