Lot #665.4 - Presenting a very unique 1957 Ford Business coupe that was inspired by the famous Ford Mustang BOSS 429. This car underwent an extensive rotissiere nut and bolt restoration. The exterior is very straight and the paint is two stage 2007 Ford Maroon Metallic. Everything on the exterior is brand new. Upgrades include a BOSS 429 functioning hood scoop thats painted in Satin Black, BOSS 429 fender decals, new tinted glass, shaved door handles with remote control, shaved trunk lock with remote control, NASCAR side exhaust black tips and custom Boze forged wheels that are 19" in the front and 20" in the rear. This car has a great stance. The interior is completely custom including the dash. The two tone gray leather was hand crafted by famous Steve Ingram. Some other upgrades include Wiseguy front seats, custom guages and switches, Painless wiring, IDIDIT steering column with tilt, power windows, power locks, power trunk release, hidden ignition and cup holders and a stock Town and Country radio that has been modified with AM/FM and iPod interface. The trunk compartment is completely matching to the interior and a perfect spot to display trophies. The engine compartment has been smoothed and painted the same color as the exterior. The heart of this beast is a completely rebuilt powerful 429cid V8 with Dove heads. It has many internal upgraded parts. It breathes through Hugger headers and ROUSH NASCAR side exhaust tips. Other upgrades include March billet aluminum pulleys, custom Giffin 4 core aluminum radiator with dual electric fans, Southern Air Conditioning and custom engraved BOSS 429 black valve covers with a matching air cleaner. The engine is coupled with a completely rebuilt C6 transmission. It has a Ford 9" rear end with posi-traction, power rack & pinion steering, Granada spindles, 4-wheel disc brakes and upgraded sway bars. Truly one-of-a-kind. From the Marc Schiliro Collection.
