Ripped right from the pages of the Hemmings blog, the one and dang only ’36 Ford coupe originally built by Herb Reneau for Long Beach, CA’s Jack Calori in 1948 is gonna be hitting the auction block!
Better known just as the “Calori Coupe,” this ’36 3-window, in our opinion, is one of two coupes that have just hands-down nailed the custom world (the other being the ’36 built by Cole Foster for Metallica ax grinder, Kirk Hammett) in ways no others have. And when our friends down the hill at Roy Brizio’s shop got the coupe buttoned up for Pebble Beach back in ’05, we were just so stoked to see them roll off the green with the top honors. Kewl.
So, it’s up for sale again at Mecum’s big-tent event in Anaheim, CA. Just what you need for the space in the garage currently inhabited by lawnmowers and fun noodles and other worthless shit that you will now clear out. Right?
