1934 Ford 3-Window Coupe owned and built by Einar Valsjø of Trondheim, Norway. Einar built one of the first custom cars of Norway, a 1952 Mercury in the early 1960s. At the time he dreamed about cruising a real hot rod at the streets of Norway. After completing the third version of his Mako Shark custom Corvette, Einar began his first hot rod build. What would become known as the "Trønder Kid", started as a 1934 Ford frame with Norwegian paper. The old frame was boxed, before Einar installed a 307 cui Chevrolet engine and a Swedish made fiberglass body.[1] The first version of the Trønder Bird was completed in 1988.[2]
