Ground up restoration on a clean California car. It has a binder full of detailed restoration work. It also has a spec page with details like what type of filters and fluids to use and what the lug nuts should be torqued too. This is from a fussy owner to say the least. The car lived in California for 61 years!
EXTERIOR: Clean California body was stripped down bare. I think it fits better now than it did when it was new! All the panels are square and flush. It's straight with no rust. Repainted it's factory Raven Black color and it is polished like a mirror. Most of the chrome and trim looks like new. It has the optional chrome eyebrows over the headlights. The bumpers are originals that have been rechromed, they're not reproduction. It also has the very rare Ford accessory road lamps built into the front bumpers. It's a 2 topper! It is an original convertible top frame, not the cheap aftermarket, and it has a rich black canvas in great shape. The hardtop was restored. It's painted slick: headliner, rubber, glass look great. The original wheels were stripped and powder coated. It has Hankook tires and original style hubcaps.
INTERIOR: It is in excellent condition. The seat was recushioned and upholstered. Carpets and door panels are in excellent shape. The dash area looks beautiful. It has been upgraded with seat belts and a retro stereo. Factory features include power windows, power seat, a tachometer and a telescopic wheel.
ENGINE COMPARTMENT: It is a very clean and proper engine compartment Completely rebuilt 292 motor and it has the dress up kit which includes finned aluminum valve covers and chrome air cleaner. It also features power steering. A very desirable upgraded is the 12 volt electrical conversion including an alternator. New wiring harness. Also upgraded aluminum radiator with a 6 blade fan, reproduction hoses and clamps. All the components look factory new. It's painted very neatly.
TRUNK COMPARTMENT: Very clean and complete. It's neatly painted black. It has reproduction liner kit, weather strip and tire cover. Complete jack and spare assembly. The owner was so fussy. He has the lug wrench Velcro in place and he put rubber grommets on it. He also made a tool to remove the hubcaps with!

The brakes were completely rebuilt; new drums, wheel cylinders and shoes. Newer dual exhaust. Newer fuel tank and straps. Spin on oil filter conversion. Ford-o-matic transmission.

I am confident the new owner will be very pleased because this car is going to treat them very well. It comes from a very meticulous owner. There's nothing to do but enjoy it!
I, Jay Grams, take pride in personally writing the descriptions for virtually every car for about the last 30 years now. A significant amount of effort goes into fact checking. What I am offering is my professional impression of the vehicle. Our salesmen are happy to assist with descriptions and making sure your questions are answered. One great suggestion is letting us do a walk around video that explains the car's condition in detail. **These cars are displayed in a museum. If interested in a particular car, make an appointment with a salesman to see that car. Without an appointment there is an admission fee to enter the showroom. If you buy a car, your admission will be refunded, and you will be given a 1 year membership.
