This is the second street rod Milt has constructed. It's based on a custom designed and built tubular frame, and a Rod Bod's steel 1932 Ford body. The frame was designed in conjunction with Perfect Touch Street rods which also performed the initial fabrication for the car. The paint was applied by Union City Auto body, and, the scallops and pin stripping were done by Horst out of Emeryville CA.
