If you are a serious lover of vintage Fords here is one you need to add to your collection...or just make it your show car, driver, trophy winner, or whatever!
This vehicle is owned by a local gentleman who is fondly referred to as a FORD FANATIC! He has babied this gem and his other collectibles. HE HAS TAKEN A HIGHLY RATED SHOW CAR AND MADE IT BE A DRIVER -- THAT IS IN A CLASS BY ITSELF. He will tell you quickly, that cars are made to be driven. He is liquidating his collection...because in his words, at 87 I'm just too damn old to enjoy them! All of his vehicles are garage stored, and only driven on perfect weather days! He keeps them fresh and ready to go, for the crystal clear day when he chooses to exercise one.....
Let's talk about this one......
This car has been judged three times (documents in hand) by the The Early Ford V8 Club of America. Out of 1000 possible points the ratings were 922, 971, and 975. Excellent scores by any standard.
This is the last edition of the 'flat head' V8. With 255 cubic inches it was a king in it's prime. The engine starts immediately, runs strong, purrs like a kitten, and roars like a tiger. There are no undesirable knocks, hisses, rattles, or leaks!
The odometer reading is irrelevant since this car has been trailered and driven to a true miles unknown status.
The three speed automatic shifts as expected.
The black and yellow rolled and pleated leather interior is flawless, absent any wear, rips, or marks. See the photos! The headliner is secure.
Power brakes....and power sterring on this gem!
The WHITE WALLED Firestone 710 - 15 tires are consistent with the purity of this show car.
The glass, chrome and paint on this gem are near perfect. .
There is absolutely NO RUST in this vehicle. The floor boards are all solid.
All crank windows operate.
