Description for Ford Coupe 1950

Nicely restored/ resto-mod 1950 Ford Coupe that was purchased new in Douglasville GA in 1950
This Auto was also the subject of a famous Ann Cookerville Painting where it sat for years in front of an Old Grocery and meat store. The following was pulled from a article.
At some time in the 20's or 30's a store was built along the highway in Lithia Springs. We know it as D.W. Bennett Grocery and Meats (Bennett's Store). In September 1944 D.W and his wife Lillian moved to Lithia Springs from Atlanta and bought the store from Thad Kilgore. The Bennetts sold gas, odas, andy and other provisions including homemade sausage made from the pigs raised by the Bennetts.Locals will remember the black 1950 Ford that sat under the store porch for decades. Some say that after Mr. Bennett's death the car was left parked where D.W. had left it.

If you want to Hear more about the story of the car, nn has a Studio/ Store called Red Cockerill Gallery and prints of the famous painting are still available. 770-944-3160
The car was finally purchased by Hal Bell of Austell in the 80s and a long restoration began..
After countless hours and no expenses spared ( this was going to his personal daily driver) This car was finishes. A fire broke out and burnt his shop and other customer cars beyond repair and he was forced to sell his 50s Coupe (which was at his house) to start a new shop.What you see now is very nice 1950 ford coupe-with upgrades of modern technology.
