    Bought the car as a wreck on 2010 and have been restoring to concourse driven standards.

    I tried to buy this car in 2008 but could not make a deal. It had a minor fender scrape but the kid who had it wanted to fix it and sell for big money (being rare and low miles). I found where he had tried to sell it on eBay a few years ago for $20k LOL! I told him to call me once it was fixed and we might make a deal. It took about 6 months and he called me back. The car was cherry and he wanted $8k. It broke my heart to turn him down since that was a fair price but that very week my daily driver broke a timing chain and trashed the head, our refrigerator when out, and had to get the washing machine fixed. I just could not take on another car at that time. So I deleted all his emails and phone messages so I would not be reminded about the deal I missed out on. Cut to 6 months later and I sold my 66 coupe and was flush with cash. Since I did not have his phone number or even name any more I just drove out to his house to see if he still had it. Good news and bad news; yes he still had it but his sister drove it into a ditch the week before (messing w/ her iPod). The damage was not too horrible but it did need a lot of love. So we negotiated again and this time, being one repair down already, he was more willing to deal. After a tough negotiation I got the car for a song and drove it like I stole it. Took it to my guy and 4 months later it was done.

    It's #1058 of 1500. We only drive it for shows, parades, and occasional cruses with our club. It;s won several 1st and 2nd place trophies and we will put it in it's first GN Show in Mustang OK 2012.

    Modifications

    Original

    •  

    Original white ponies. I have 8 NOS extra center caps and three extra wheels in the attic.

    Flowmaster off road H pipe and flowmaster 40 mufflers.

    •  

    Before I ever decided to show this car I had subframe connectors added and the cats removed. Wish I had not done that. Guess I have to take the points hit for that.

    •  

    New leather, new map pockets, and that's it. Even the ashtray door works. I've got the original NOS floor mats still in the Ford box. Never been stepped on.

    •  

    I've got a AC clutch hub to replace and needs a correct BX58C battery but other than that it's all stock.
