Dean Jeffries' 1947 Mercury Convertible of Lynwood, California. Restyled around 1955 - 1956, Jeffries dressed the Merc up with murals, flames and pinstriping. In 1957 he sold it to Pharaohs of Toledo car club member Jerry Halak of Toledo, Ohio. In 1958 Halak sold the Merc to Larry Nadrasik who was a senior at Woodward High. In 2018 Kevin Roberts told Ross Ruiz of 46 to 64 that Larry moved to England, UK, and apparently brought the Merc with him. Unfortunately, Larry passed away in 1994, and nobody knows what happened to the old custom.
Andy Brizio's 1915 Ford Model T C-Cab Panel Truck featured a ribbon paint job by Art Himsl. Named "Instant T," the car was built mainly to drive to the Street Rod Nationals in Memphis, Tennessee, in August of 1971. At the show, it won the "Best Appearing Car" award in competition with 1,500 other cars. Led Zeppelin drummer John Bonham bought the truck and shipped it to England, where it later appeared in the film The Song Remain the Same. Photo from The Art Himsl Collection.
