Quinton/Joehnck Comp Coupe - restored by Rudy Rodriguez

One of my favorite competition coupes, a 1932 Ford 3-window coupe, originally built in 1951 by Bob Joehnck for owner and driver Jack Quinton, who raced the car from 1951 to 1962. It set several records at El Mirage and Bonneville, and could be seen on the drag strip in Ponmona, Santa Ana, and Santa Maria.

The car was recently restored by Rudy Rodriguez or Fullerton Fabrication, it took First Place in Competition Class at the 2007 Grand National Roadster Show. The car is simply beautiful and looks like it's ready to get back to business! Love it!

Photos of the restoration can bee seen on Fullerton Fabrication's website and were taken by Mike Chase, of Mike Chase Photo.
