Walter did a B400 conversion for me about 5/6 years ago and the workmanship was very good. The car you see in the pictures is an even better job. He just gets better with every conversion. Kowalsky Kustoms www.walterscars.5u.com that is the last web address I have for him. I'm finishing my 30 year project 3 window and have a sedan delivery waiting in the wings, gennie roadster body and frame, a stock cab PU about 1/2 done and a 348 powered Brookville Highboy ready for paint and interior. I'll never live long enough to get it all finished.

FYI ... the Kowalsky Kustoms website moved to http://www.kowalskykustoms.com.

That B400 was built by Everett Grey in ILL. I sold mine unfinished to a man in WI. He has it about 75% done. I had to many irons in the fire so some of my projects had to go. Sold my Vicky and B400. As stated in the earlier post I have enough deuces to last as long as I want to build cars.

I have 2 current 32 projects and a long line of built/sold or bought/sold 32's going back 45 years. A have never been much of a picture taker and now regret not having taken photos of many of the cars I've had. Doing better now though.

I bought this 7 years ago after seeing it the first time 30 years before when I was in high school. The original owner worked at the Ford plant in Long Beach. He bought the car in Detroit and drove it to Long Beach. When they shut the Long Beach plant down in the mid fifties he retired and sold the car to a friend of mine, Paul Baker. Paul pulled the 4 banger and put in a '53 Cad engine. It stayed like that until the late '60s when he put a 351 and C-6 in it.
When I first saw it in his garage in '72 the 351 was in it and it was running on propane. There was a tank in the trunk. Paul took the car apart shortly after that and it stayed in pieces until he sold it to me in '03. The chassis is done and the body is at the painter.
