Look at the pictures, this car is extremely impressive with its color combination and its fender skirts. The engine bay is clean enough to pass for restored. Underneath, it's just as clean and still has the original factory undercoating, befitting a car of this age and mileage. The car rolls on a set of new whitewall radials with original Ford hubcaps. To the best of my knowledge this car is all original and I have done my best to keep it that way. Call today!
