Vehicle Description

THE LA BAMBA1941 FORD DELUXE BUSINESS COUPE. This coupe was resurrected in 1972 from a "Yonke yard the Mexican Boarder (soy La Bamba)..

Believe it or not, the La Bamba kicked over and ran? Minor adjustments were made to the Carb, a five gallon "bucket" for a seat was strapped in and we drove it up to San Clemente, CA.. During the 70's and 80's the La Bamba was a project car. The original seat was repaired and my teenage girls drove it to high school. We spent endless hours hand-sanding, changing push rods and driving to Laguna Beach for Sunday Brunch.. . Note: One must always park on a hill facing down! The battery goes down fast (no radio - girls - when parked), the starter fails and the engine vapor locks. Carry a set of tools, spare coil, starter, condenser, voltage regulator and fuel pump. As one can see, the La Bamba still needs lots of work but it's a good car that will bring you lots of happiness.. Oh! The joys of a "Ford V8 Flat Head...
