Default I would be happy for som help

Hey!

My name is André and I come from Sweden.

I bought myself a Ford Super Deluxe Opera Coupé 1941.

The seller told me that the car was in a movie and now I would like help finding out which movie it is?

The movie is apparently about "Dirt track racing"

A clue may be that in the car lay a jacket with the text "Sponsored by José Tequila".

How the car looks is shown in the attached picture. The only thing I changed is the text -41 on the door and that I dismantled the bumpers.

Grateful for help.
Best regards; André

If the seller claims that the car was in a movie, why can't the seller provide that information?
Or maybe it,s just a lot of you know what by the seller.

My friend bought it for me in the US.

Former owner is Allen R Gonzales and lives in San Bernadino.
He had in turn bought it from a film company but the seller there did not have much information to give him.

For me, it doesn't matter if it has been in a movie or not, I love the car and it runs like a dream.

Would just be fun if someone knew anything about it.
