The '36 was featured on the cover of The Rodder's Journal issue #78. Inside, the expansive 14-page article chronicles the car's history as a custom in the '50s through Jon's 20-year odyssey working with Squeeg Jerger, Terry Hegman, Jason Smith, Dean Alexander, and a host of other respected craftsmen to complete his exquisite custom roadster.
In 2016, the roadster appeared at the Grand National Roadster Show where it was in contention for the coveted America's Most Beautiful Roadster award.
After seeing the roadster at the Street Rod Nationals, Meguiar's selected it to appear in their booth at the 2017 SEMA Show where its flawless finish exemplified their cleaning and detailing products.
"The way I'd pictured this car we created was that it was as if Clark Gable bought a '36 Ford roadster off a used car lot and took it to one of the coachbuilders and says, 'Build me a car that will be an absolute stunner when I take my girlfriend to the theater or the restaurant. They'll roll out the red carpet, and people will be looking at this car after we're gonE.'"
