Today’s featured car is a 1940 Ford coupe hot rod. Owner and builder Eric Wittak spend much of the ’70s racing at Great Lakes Dragaway in Union Grove, Wisconsin. Inspired by the Stone, Woods, and Cook’s Willys gasser, Wittak decided to build a Willys street rod. However, he’d take a few detours on the way. The first was a 1939 Plymouth coupe. The second came in the form of a beautiful original 1940 Ford coupe. Wittak promptly sold the Plymouth to finance his new project and got to work.
