Bill Smith's 1934 Ford Roadster Custom of Alameda, California. Bill was a member of the Shamrocks of Alameda car club, and he set out to build the roadster in 1955. Built from a retired Tudor Sedan, Bill modified the body by cutting off the roof and moving it down to form the trunk. He completed the build the same year, showing it at the 1956 National Roadster Show.

The Shamrocks was a car club from Alameda, California. Jim Bramell was a member of the club in the mid 1950s. In 2020 Bramell told Sondre Kvipt of Kustomrama that it was a great club, with great leadership. "The Shamrocks were highly respected by both the general public and fellow competitors."[1]
