FOR SALE: Pure Perfection
Canyon lake , California

Greg Evans ’50 Ford
Greg Evans is no stranger to owning some
very cool cars over the years, and his latest kustom
is no exception. After cruising around in a mid-‘60s
Cadillac, Greg had the urge to build a shoebox Ford
with a nice chop and traditional body modifications.
Through mutual friends, Greg teamed up with King
Kustoms in Temecula to search for a ’49-’51 Ford
Tudor Sedan to build into a kustom. Mark Nimmo of
Costa Mesa, California happened to be selling his
daily driver ’50 Ford that already had a 302, C4, and
8” Ford rear end. The timing was perfect and the car
was delivered to Rob Radcliffe to start the metal
work.
The body on the Ford was in pretty good
condition but still needed the usual shoebox Ford
rust repair in the rockers, passenger rear quarter
panel, and some small floor patches. At this time,
the rear floor was tunneled to clear the driveshaft
and a new trunk floor was built to cover the step
notch in the frame. Once the structural metal work
was completed, the fun part began on the outside
with a pair of ’52 Merc head light bezels that were
frenched and pulled in ½”. The stock grill was
retained with shaved parking lights and the front
valance was molded to the fenders. Out back, a pair
of ’50 Buick tail lights were frenched into handmade
openings that were blended into the stock shoebox
Ford wind-splits.
To capture the era of a real ‘50s kustom,
Greg had Rob Radcliffe at King Kustoms in
Temecula, California chop the top 5 ½” with slanted
B pillars and an extended catwalk. The front
windshield was opened up into the roof crown for
better visibility and the driprails were shaved for a
completely smooth look. The rear window was
brought down to the beltline to resemble a coupe. All
of the original stainless window trim was chopped
down and replaced along with the vent windows. To
top it all off, the inside window frames were metal-
finished and chrome-plated. Buena Park Chrome did
all of the chrome and stainless work on Greg’s Ford.
Once the metalwork was completed and
parts were sent off to the chrome shop, Chris
Radcliffe jumped in on disassembly before the body
went to Zbest Paint and Body in Lake Elsinore,
California. A custom-mixed metallic blue was
sprayed over every square inch of the Ford, creating
a striking look that Greg really desired. After the
paint was dry, the car was rolled over to Junior’s
Upholstery just down the road from the painter. A
blue and white diamond tuck interior was created to
compliment the exterior color.
Greg’s shoebox Ford was now well on its
way to being the kustom that he always wanted as it
headed back to King Kustoms in Temecula. Chris
Radcliffe completely rewired the car and added an
Old Car Air heater and AC unit so Greg can keep
cruising year-round. Chris also painted the engine
block, transmission, and engine bay before he
reassembled all of the running gear. Rob Radcliffe
handled the glass install, chrome, and stainless
before having the car tuned by Eddie at Temecula
Transmission.
Working in the oil fields for weeks at a time
gives Greg Evans the urge to come home and hop
in a killer kustom in the California sun. Patience and
dedication have paid off for him now that his ’50
Ford is roaming the streets of Southern California.
