Located near PORTLAND, OREGON.
This spectacular Ford was acquired in 2000 by the current owner in dry, solid, original condition; having been stored in Oregon since the 1960's. The current owner spent 13 years performing a painstaking concours-quality show restoration with subtle modern performance upgrades, including:
• Fatman front frame clip with:
• Mustang II Suspension.
• Power Steering.
• Tubular A Arms.
• Front Disc Brakes.
Engine was upgraded to a SBC 350/330 Horsepower Performance V8
with 380 ft.lbs of torque. 9.1:1 compression ratio. Polished billet valve covers and air cleaner.
• Chromed accessories. Beautifully detailed under the hood. Please see photos.
• 350 Turbo Automatic Transmission.
• 8" Ford rear end with drum brakes.
• Suspension slightly lowered.
• 15" Vintique original style wheels wrapped with Diamondback/Toyo radial wide whitewall tires.
Runs and drives beautifully. Smooth, powerful and FAST.
Please see video of engine running.
Body was stripped to bare metal. Painted in deep gloss black (Twice - owner was not satisfied with first paint job!)
The results are stunning. Laser-straight body with exceptional panel fit and finish. Black is probably the most unforgiving color and reveals all flaws. The finish of this car is flawless. All chrome re-plated and trim polished to show quality.
Interior was fully reupholstered in red leather, with red carpet. Gorgeous quality and finish.
• All gauges professionally rebuilt. Upgraded for 12 volts.
• Flaming River Tilt Steering Column with Classic 15" Billet Specialties Steering Wheel.
• AIR CONDITIONING professionally installed.
• Power front windows.
• Electric power top.
• AM/FM stereo hidden in the glove compartment.
• Dynamat™ sound/heat insulation installed throughout the body.
When completed in 2013, this car was premiered at the 57th annual Portland Roadster Show where it was judged and received awards for Best in Class Custom Convertible and the 2013 Best Custom Interior from the International Show Car Association (ISCA.)
Continual upgrades have been made over the years and the car has continued to receive awards wherever shown. Most recently, at the 2019 63rd Annual Portland Roadster Show this past March, this car again received a Best In Class Award as Best Custom Convertible, verfiying the current outstanding condition.
The odometer now shows a total of just 93 miles since completion of the restoration. It is ready to garner more awards or provide thousands of miles of comfortable touring in style.
The only reason for selling is to make room in the garage for the next project.
Well over $100,000 has been invested in this car and it shows.
