Description

Lot #693.2 - This car is an Arizona original being bought at Don Sanderson Ford. It was in good original condition, but showing its age. The restoration was started in 1999, and finished in 2005. The car has been completely disassembled on a rotisserie down to the last bolt. It was sand and bead blasted, and sent to the body shop for cosmetic (much block sanding and finishing) to reach its finish and mirror-like paint job. Rebuilt 390cid engine, rebuilt transmission balanced drive shaft, rebuilt speedometer, new air conditioning compressor. It also has a new top, windshield and new leather upholstery. All new aluminum trim inside and a rebuilt top retraction mechanism. This all adds up to a very attractive car that has been shown only at VTCI international and regional meets in the last five years. It has been shown in concours events and won first place in all four shows. It is a senior car having received that honor at Houston International in 2007. The car has won concours first at Colorado Springs 2008, and at Portland in 2011, besides a regional in San Diego in 2006. This car has been trailered to all these shows. Awards are not included with the car.
