1941 Ford Business Coupe
Owned by Richard Graese

The Winner of the 2013 TCCS Best in Show was this 1941 Ford Business Coupe, owned by Richard Graese, of Phoenix, AZ. When it was produced Ford decided to make the front fenders in three pieces, so small fender benders could be easily fixed/replaced. Graese has renovated the car, and it now has a Corvette Engine.
