IN THE EARLY '90s Custom Designer-Extraordinaire, STEVE STANFORD, created a concept drawing of a Phantom 3-window 1950 Ford Business Coupe that appeared in an Issue of "Rod & Custom" Magazine. Rock & Roll Legend, Billy F Gibbons, took the "concept" seriously and went to then-PC3g (now So-Cal Speed Shop), to put his dream together...which they did PERFECTLY !
By the time the car was finished, it had been shifted and changed into the fantastic, street rodded, dream machine you see here and given the name: "Kopperhed" !!
Listen in now, as Steve & I have some fun when we got together for a Late-Night one-on-one, no-holds-barred Interview...with some Rock 'N Roll results ! JK
