The story on that 32 was that it was done as an anti-spit and polish rod before the days of billet-proof and rat rods. It was painted with brushes and a bucket of red paint at one of the street rod events by the owner and friends. Later on those magazine pages were applied in a sort of decoupage method. What escapes me is who did it.... Bobby may be right, Pete of Pete and Jakes? It was like, 30 years ago I think.
IIRC, it was Jake who built that one. BTW, it's not a '32, but a '29 Model A Phaeton body on '32 Ford rails.
