John Milner's piss yella coupe

"This little yellow Deuce coupe is possibly the most famous Hot Rod of all time. Known as Milner's Coupe, this 1932 Ford 5-window coupe has turned more people on to cruising and street rodding over the past 25 years than just about any other car. The coupe has been the subject of countless magazine articles, models, posters and hundreds of clones. The exact history of this car is nebulous, but Graffiti director George Lucas picked it out of a lineup of thirteen or fourteen coupes he had located before filming. They paid $1300 for the 32, and chose it primarily because it already had a chopped top. The coupe was then given to Henry Travers, who was in charge of preparing the cars for Graffiti. Lucas sat down with Travers and described exactly how the 32 was to look. The coupe was taken to Johnny Franklin's shop in Santa Rosa, where the entire front end was rebuilt and chrome plated and a special set of headers was built. The fenders were removed (the rears bobbed), the grill sectioned, and then the car was stripped and repainted with several coats of Canary yellow Lacquer. Mechanically, the only changes were the addition of S T-10 four speed and a Man-a Fre four two -barrel intake." Source;- www.americangraffiticoupe.com
