1930 Ford Model A Coupe owned by Henrik "Hank" Forss of Sacramento, California. Known as the "Hollywood Howler," Hank's Coupe was originally built by Jorel Shockley at Shockley Customs in Fort Worth, Texas.[1]

Shockley started building the coupe in 2008. At his shop, the top was chopped 4 1/4 inches. The body was also channeled 5 inches over the frame, and the firewall was moved back 10 inches. The body was mounted on a 1932 Ford frame from American Stamping Company. Shockley completed the build in 2010.[1]

More Sonics - Less Sinatra

Hank bought the coupe in 2021. Wanting to give it a 1960s street racer look, Hank gave it a makeover after it arrived in Sacramento. He painted the frame white before he had Kyle Martin at Martin Kolor & Style pinstripe it in white. Martin also painted the name "Hollywood Howler" on the decklid. In order to give it the right stance, Hank installed chromed wheels from Speedway Motors. Up front he installed Firestone 560-15 1 Inch Whitewall Tires. 1000-15 Radir Whitewall Slicks went on the back for the proper "Hollywood Hank" look. More Sonics - Less Sinatra
