I purchased the car in 1986 as a partially restored car built in California and sold by a Phoenix AZ Ford dealer. Over the years the car has been improved (i.e. all chrome parts refinished). It has lived its entire life in a dry desert environment. Since 1999 the car has been in a climate controlled garage. In 2016 a complete mechanical restoration was performed (detail invoices available and attached pictures show the restoration process) by Galpin Motor Sport. New custom period correct tires (Radial) and disc brakes added to improve performance. Installed all new styled steel wheel kits (15X6) to accommodate the disc brake conversion. Installed light blue Rally Pac (6000 RPM). . …
4 speed/ 289 cid 4 barrel like new condition. There is not a single mechanical component that hasn't been restored or replaced.
The car has won multiple "Best in Class" awards since it's initial restoration. A great problem free car. It has driven only 284 miles since the mechanical restoration in 2016.
