Default Want a good puzzle?

They are trying to figure what this Ford really is on the AACA site.

It's a mess, to say the least.

Looks like a Henway.

Definitely an odd duck.
Tail lights are 49-50 Ford turned 90 degrees. Rear window is bigger than it should be, but the trunk emblem is 47-48 Ford.
Looks like someone made this out of every spare part they could find.

An interesting exercise.

There's no way there is any factory involvement in that one, it's just one mans project. (I'm guessing). Probably had access to various wrecked vehicles and pieced together something from what was to hand.

Hard to be sure with all the damage and rust, but it looks like the builder did a decent job on the tin work if not the aesthetics...some of it must have been pretty involved, like the windshield area. The seams between regular Ford and alien tin seem, within the limits of the photos, to be invisible.
My guess...he'd had enough of trying to back up with the original rear window. After he fixed that, he caught rabies or something...

Henway, Piecost, or my favorite, a roll of "flight line".
