"The Memphis Coupe"     1934 Ford Coupe

Introduction / Overview:

I Imported the Coupe to the UK in 2006, I found it at Goodguys Nashville event and bought it from David and Kirby Kennedy from Selmer, Tennessee who'd taken it to the event. George Poteet considers this 'The one that got away' as he would have bought it had he known! Especially as he lent us a truck to drive to the event. Thanks George!

The car was first rodded in Michigan and at one time was fully fendered show car with Corvair front suspension. David owned it as a project before putting on the road in 2005,  the car just has so much stuff on it that I wanted on a rod it seemed like sense to buy it all in one hit, besides steel Coupe's are rare in the UK!
