Bill Collins' 1939 Ford
1939 Ford Convertible owned by Bill Collins of Dallas, Texas. According to his good friend Karl Knecht, Bill lived in the Oak Cliff part of Dallas, and he was one of the early hot rodders there in the 1950s. The Ford was Bill's first car, and photos taken in the mid 1950s shows it featuring a chopped and padded Carson style top. The same photos show that the running boards have been removed, the hood has been nosed, and he sidetrim shortened. Running without fenderskirts, it was dressed up with Cadillac Sombrero hubcaps and a 1941 Ford front bumper.
