1932 Ford The "Ricky Nelson Roadster"


Built and owned by Californian Ray De Fillipi in the 1950s, this car shows the low and racy profile that could be achieved by "channeling," a hot rod builder's technique that lowered the body of the car over the frame rails. The car was seen in the '50s television sitcom, "The Adventures of Ozzie and Harriet," with their two sons, hot rod enthusiasts Dave and Rick Nelson, in the car. This is one of very few early rods to have survived with few additional modifications and its history documented from day one.
