1946 Ford Club Coupe owned by Ilkka Suokkola of Finland. In 2003 Janne Kutja chopped the top on Ilkka's coupe. The car was painted flat black, and the tailights were removed and replaced with small motorcycle taillights located in the bumper. Coupe Devils member Ken Norrena, of Oslo, Norway aquired the car around 2006.

Ken installed a fresh french flathead in the car. In the winter of 2009, Kjetil Kvipt restyled the front end by frenching the headlights and installing a 1948 Cadillac grille. Ken painted the car flat dark green when he got it home again. Appleton spotlights and 1947-1952 Cadillac sombreros were installed to finish up the style. Bumper guards were added as well. In the winter of 2011, Ken sold the car to Sweden.[1]
