WELL, I DON'T KNOW IF YOU EVER SAW THE ICONIC MOVIE CALLED "AMERICAN GRAFFITI" OR NOT BUT I BET YOU DID. THIS IS THE PORT HOLE COLOR TWIN TO THE MOVIE CAR THAT WAS ACTULLY A '56.

THERE WAS THIS INCREDIBLE, UNKOWN, BLONDE CREATURE SHOWN FOR ABOUT 30 SECONDS SITTING AT A TRAFFIC LIGHT DOWNTOWN AT NIGHT. THE GUYS OUT CRUISING LOST THEIR MINDS WHEN THEY GOT A PEEK OF HER IN HER GORGEOUSE WHITE OVER RED PORT HOLE T-BIRD. THE SCENE WAS AT NIGHT. HER NAME WAS SUZANNE SOMERS! LATER TO BECOME A SUPER STAR ON TELEVISION. I DON'T REMEMBER HOW YOUNG I WAS WHEN I WATCHED THAT INCREDIBLE MOVIE BUT I KNOW MY HEART STOPPED AND MY JAW DROPPED!

AFTER OWNING THIS SWEET RIDE FOR DECADES, HE DICIDED IT WAS TIME TO RESTORE IT.
BORN BLUE WITH A CLUNKY 3 SPEED MANUAL TRANNY, HE DECIDED TO RESTORE IT TO THE CAR IN THE MOVIE WITH SUZANNE. SHE NOW WEARS THE PROPER WHITE OVER BEAUTIFUL NEW RED INTERIOR. SHIFTING IS MADE VERY EASY WITH THE CORRECT FORD O MATIC AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION. ( 3 SPEED )

THIS WAS NO HURRY UP AND THROW IT TOGETHER RESTORATION. HE WAS VERY CAPABLE AND VERY PATIENT. THIS CAR WAS A BIG PART OF HIS LIFE UNTIL PASSING.

TOP TO BOTTOM, THIS IS AN EXCELLENT T-BIRD. HE WAS DETERMINED TO SEND IT OFF INTO THE FUTURE IN THE BEST OF WAYS.
He did tell his wife that the soft top should be replaced to complete the car. That job was just completed and looks perfect! We have a full inspection report.

WE THINK HE DID A GREAT JOB.

SHE'S WONDERFULLY EQUIPPED WITH THE 312 V-8, HOLLEY 4 BBL, FORDOMATIC AUTO TRANSMISSION, POWER STEERING, POWER BRAKES , TELESCOPIC STEERING WHEEL, POWER WINDOWS, AND POWER SEAT, 2 TOPS, HARD AND NEW SOFT TOP!
