As my father says, “Real hot rods don’t need no stinkin’ paint!” This is my father’s 1947 Chevy coupe. He has done all the body work and customizing himself. Shaved, decked, nosed, etc. He has also installed a late model gas flap. I helped him remove the center windshield bar and install a butted windshield. The car is currently in gray prime, but dad has started to paint the car flat (suede) black.
