Artist's Description

1932 Ford Three Window Coupe built by Andy Kassa of Passaic, New Jersey. The car is known as the Kassa Coupe, and Andy bought the car in 1948 and started to modify it in 1953. Meadowlands Street Rod Association in the mid 1990s talked Andy into letting them restore the car for him. Many of the guys had seen the car as kids, and were glad to help Andy bring his old show car back on the streets. The restoration started in the early 1990s, and Andy chipped in some money for chrome and paint. Many years of storage had taken its toll on the car. The paint was ruined, the engine needed rebuilding, and lots of chrome needed rebuilding and replating. It took 15 months, working only on Friday nights to complete the restoration. They kept the car as it was, as the interior was still in great shape, and only needed a little cleaning. No changes were done to the car except for changing color. The Barris paint job was replaced by a Viper Rad paint job. The only changes they made were done for safety. Fresh wires, electrical and fuel shut offs, and improved body supports. By 1996 the car was running again.
