Marlin Larson's 37' Ford Tudor

37' Ford Tudor

What a great build this was. We are proud of every car we build or have a hand in, no doubt about it, but we really love the way Marlin Larson's 37' Ford came together. Marlin sent us this email and we just enjoy the story so much.

It was also just featured on Dream Ridez. I will make sure to add the link at the bottom for the full episode.

"Just in case you are interested in old cars.....

Last August we had the opportunity to show our '37 Ford (nick named Einar after the original owner Einar Hanson) at the 48th Annual National Street Rod National Association show in Louisville, Ky. This is the largest NSRA show in the country with 10,000 to 11,000 street rods showing up for this large out door car show. There is a 4 to 5 acre Exhibition hall which contains over 100 vendors, and in the front entrance they have a neat glassed foyer area where the "Builders Showcase" is displayed. Thanks to Michael Young from Street Rods by Michael, for Building my dream. I’m so glad Michael chose to exhibit our '37 Ford at the NSRA Builders Showcase with approximately 30 to 45 fine built and specialty cars of all types.

While at the show, Masters Entertainment Group who shoots contracts film for many TV channels to air on Velocity, CBS Sports, Rev'n, and MAVTV channels was there. This TV episode of the 2017 48th Nationals was aired by MAVTV on December 10th. The show is recorded on the YouTube attached below, and has an interview and short clip or our Ford street rod. Click on the link and it will open and show the entire 23 minutes of the complete show, but FAST FORWARD TO approximately minute 20 for the segment showing our '37 Ford.

The weekend was once-in-a-lifetime experience for me. While I didn't spend much time with the car, it was really fun to talk to the many spectators walking by and taking a look. The main comments were "It is great looking, but you didn't screw it still looks like Henry Ford's 1937 production car".

Here is a couple pictures of how it looked over 50 years ago in 1965 & 66. (Yes, that is me with the car!)"
