Vehicle Description

Price revised Aug 26, 2018. The owner, now in their 80s has recently moved into a retirement home and wants to find a new car lover to look after this soon-to-be centenarian car.

Take this car with its unique, vibrant coloring and classic design and drive it through any city and you'll get the same reaction: heads swivel and smiles break out on faces.  When it's parked people want to get photographed with it and when it's at shows or in parades it frequently comes home with plaques and ribbons.   The inspiration for the colors were tropical fish seen while scuba diving in Indonesia.

This vehicle must be seen in order to appreciate the attention to detail and the calibre of restoration that has been done. The entire interior of the car has been done in buttery-soft orange leather with custom work on the headliner and door panels in purple to match the exterior. The body might be 1926 but mechanics of the car are state of the art. The car is very rare and very well done and runs like a charm and it has won more than 25 awards/trophies. Ford 302 V8, 4-Bar with a 5" dropped axle. Power Steering. Power Brakes. Custom leather interior, power windows, CD Stereo etc. Approx 13000 kms.
