A HISTORIC KUSTOM MAGAZINE SHOW CAR YOU CAN BUILD A LEAD SLED BUT YOU CAN’T BUILD HISTORY! THIS RADICAL KUSTOM HARDTOP HAS BEEN IN MAGAZINES & CAR SHOWS SINCE 1958 ! This 1947 Ford was radically customized between 1955 1957 FIRST INDRODUCED ON THE 1958 show circuit As “The Gooney Bird” This 1947 Ford was radically customized between 1955-1957 in upstate New York by Ronlyn Collision. This Ford was Named after the historical Douglas C47/ DC-3 used in WW2 and Korean War known as “The Gooney Bird”. by the pilots who fly them. the name was given to the car by the owner who was a member of the U. S. Air force during the Korean War. he also was responsible for grafted on the 1951 Crown Victoria top at his shop Ronlyn Collision. The car now official known as “The Gooney Bird” competed and WON FIRST PLACE in its class at the very First Clutch Artist AUTO-RAMA in Buffalo New York . July 12-13 1958. The car has been featured in late 50’s and early 60’s Car Craft and Hotrod Magazines as well as in the 1958 NYC NAPA Calendar. “The Gooney Bird” was featured in Car Craft magazine while being shown at the 1962 Buffalo New York Autorama show at the Masten Ave Armory. by the time that show was held the car had already won 6- 1st place trophies in it’s radical hardtop class. it is considered one of the most significant historical customs ever built in the 1950’s to still be fully 100% road worthy and operational today. This 1947 Ford is a true example of an all steel old school 1950’s kustom. I HAVE INCLUDED A COUPLE OF SPECIAL HISTORICAL PHOTOS. WHEN THE CAR WAS FIRST BUILT IT WAS CAMPAIGNED ON THE SHOW CIRCUIT IN ORANGE AND THIS ONE SHOT WAS COLORIZED TO ILLUSTRATE THAT. THE OTHER SHOT WAS TAKEN IN THE EARLY 60'S WHEN IT HAD ALREADY WON 6 FIRST PLACE TROPHIES IN THE RADICAL HARD TOP CLASS The Famous George Barris Crest: The story go’s that When Barris first saw “the Gooney Bird” sometime in 1997 while in Buffalo NY it had just undergone a frame off restoration and was still being prep for paint. his initial instinct was that his brother Sam had either built this 1947 Ford or somehow had a hand in building it. when he realized that Sam hadn’t built the car he wanted to badge this 1947 Ford Coupe with his logo Crests stating that it is a true example of a traditional historical 1950’s custom that he and Sam would have built and deserved to ware the famous Barris Crest. this is the ultimate endorsement by the King of custom cars. In memory of his brother Sam George also signed Sam’s name to the dash. “The Gooney Bird” has worn those famous Barris Crest ever since that time. The car was frame off restored between 1996- 1997. most of the original lead from the 1955/57 build was removed during this time. the body was soda blasted and a fresh engine was installed. the car had ran a Buick Nailhead engine since the 1950’s. that engine was replaced with a big block Oldsmobile engine which remained in the car until 2009 when the 2002 Ford GT 4. 6 engine & trans was installed. 57 years after its original build the body lines are still beautiful and the car runs flawlessly. After being taken out of the public eye for many years “The Gooney Bird” showed up on the show circuit again in 2000 and went on to take second in its class at the 2000 Detroit Autorama. it’s also on the 2004 December cover of KKOA magazine. It won a Preservation Award at the 2009 -6th annual Ink–n-Iron show held at the Queen Mary in Long Beach California then it took 2nd place “Post War Custom” in 2010 at the Long Beach Motorama. Was chosen Best Custom award at the 2011 West Coast Kustoms “Cruisin Nationals” Santa Maria show by Rodz Deluxe for its workmanship. In 2012 Car Kulture De Luxe did a beautiful 3 page color center fold spread on the car. In July of 2014 the car won The Crown Of Lake Arrowhead for best Kustom car on the mountain.
