This Great 8 Ridler Award finalist is rather unique. A lot of high level customs start out as design concepts and then the owner finds a suitable donor car for the project. This car, though, has never left the family that’s owned it. It’s a two owner car, a father and a son and now the son has brought it back to life big time. Kenny Serusun’s dad bought this 1934 Ford Tudor Sedan back when it was new and he never got rid of it. In 2009 Serusun entrusted custom designer Bobby Anderson with the car and its restoration, eventually encouraging him to customize it, resulting is what Serusun calls Dad’s ’34. It has a chopped and rolled roof, a blown engine and oval headlights that incorporate polished stainless steel bowls bought at Target used as reflectors, a nice old school customizing touch in this age of 3D printers and 5-axis CNC machines. According to Anderson, except for the supercharger, he fabricated just about everything on the car and did all the bodywork, paint, upholstery and mechanical work including building the engine. Anderson’s work appears to be flawless. I particularly like the way the triangular shaped exhaust tips nestle underneath the shaped and scalloped rear fascia.
