There are 3 styles of Forties that I like - 1. the raked coupe with mags and nice lumpy cam, hood optional, lots of chrome. 2. custom, chopped & sectioned convertible, and 3. This one.

Finding the fuel filler door was easy, the hard part is finding the guts to cut a big-ass hole in your mint rear fender! :o ;D
  jaded iconoclast, could you tell me what the gas door is from?  PLEASE

The coupe from the movie Hollywood Knights.  I think that it was also in American Graffiti, not sure.
Brooks/Hiser Coupe.   Not the same coupe that is in American Graffiti.  Started in the late 50s.  The perfect 40 IMO....  This is it I figure around 1980, Tommy Hiser is a friend an ex co-worker of my father.

Thanks for the clarification.  It really stood out in it's time; very few were modifying forties like this.

Saw this on FB this morning and had to share.  The stance is great but I just have to wonder if the front wheels rub ???

Wondering if it's airbagged. looks like the front tires would certainly rub.

A couple of louvered hoods.  I like the hoods better when the louvers go further back towards the cowl, but it is a lot more work as you have to remove the internal bracing to do that.
