1957 Ford 300 sedan owned and restyled by Bert Gustafsson of Bullaren, Sweden. Bert bought an old rusted four-door that had been in Sweden since the 1950s. Originally, Bert wanted to build a chopped four-door, but after he had chopped the top he decided to weld shut the rear doors and complete it as a two-door. Most of the chrome was shaved away before Bert extended the quarter panels. The build was ready for the road in 1984. In 1985 it was completed with a white and blue scallop paint job.

The car was sold to a member of Bålsta Car Club. He restyled the front and back of the car before the body was channeled over the frame to get it lower.[1]

Sold to Norway

In June of 2017 the car was sold to Tobbe Husin of Blaker, Norway.
