Bob Creasman's 1940 Ford coupe of Los Angeles, California. Bob began restyling the car late in 1943, making it the first 1940 Ford coupe to be channeled, and the second to be chopped in the Los Angeles area. The work was done in conjunction with the Brand Brothers Body Shop in Los Angeles. In 1948 the car received fadeaway fenders.

In 1944 Dan Post published Dan Post Remodeler's Manual a mimeograph about custom cars, and the foundation for the first known custom car book. The booklets Dan Post's California Custom Car Photo Album and Dan Post's Original Master Custom-Restyling Manual followed in 1947 before Dan Post's Original Blue Book of Custom Restyling was published in 1949. This is the first known custom car book, and a must-read if you want to dive down into the roots of the custom car scene. In 1951 he published the Enlarged Super Edition Blue Book of Custom Restyling.
