Former Rod & Custom cover car

The original design for this shoebox Ford was published by noted custom car and Hot Wheels designer Harry Bentley Bradley, creator of the infamous Deora, in a 1983 edition of Street Rodder magazine. They caught the eye of Donn Lowe, who began in 1996 to build the car that Bradley had dreamed. The project was eventually sold to Jack Barnard and completed by the legendary Sam Foose, giving rise to the name of The Foose Ford, by which the car has been known ever since.
