1941 Chevrolet Convertible restyled by Link Paola for Spencer Murray of Glendale, California. Spence bought the car in 1943 after selling his first car, a 1941 Ford Convertible. The car was slightly customized by Link who filled the deck lid. At the time Link restyled Spencer's car, he ran an unnamed one-car shop. The car was slightly lowered, and fit with a single 1941 Buick fender skirt that Spence salvaged from the Broken Drum junkyard on San Fernando Road in Glendale. A rightside matching fender skirt was later found and mounted on the car. Four exhaust tips were routed out from the rear of the car. The unchopped convertible was fit with a padded top from Carson Top Shop. After installing the Carson Top, one of the vacuum cylinders that originally operated the convertible top was used to raise and lower the deck lid. The modifications on the car was done just before Spencer was drafted in to the U.S. Navy. When he returned to civilian life, he sold the car and bought a 1946 Chevrolet.[1]
