FROM humble beginnings as a bunch of loose Model A Ford panels in a box trailer, Bill ‘Cusso Bill’ Noach’s 1930 Ford five-window coupe turned out pretty special.
While Bill has been involved with modifying, racing and restoring classic American cars for decades, he is only a recent convert to the world of hot rodding – which probably explains why his coupe is such an individual statement.
Bill repaired the body, then chopped and channelled it over the chassis, giving the car a cool, long-slung stance. Bill’s love of classic 50s and 60s Fords is evident throughout, with a blown 292ci Y-block, ‘65 XL Galaxy wheel caps and ‘53 Ford-based taillights.
