Recent Tune Up 



We are presenting this car for a good client. We were told it is a very original car. It's a driver quality car that can be taken to the next level and is a model not seen that often.    The interior appears to be original. It is in fair condition for it's age.    The under dash a/c is working.   The original radio is not working, so a newer stereo has been installed in the glove box.   The remote side mirror is missing it's control lever.    The convertible top is working. It does however have a few small holes in 2 places.    The trunk has no signs of rust.   The 289ci V-8 runs well and was just treated to a complete tune up.    The paint is not the cars strong point. There is orange peel, and some bubbling which will show in later photos.

It looks like Ford had something similar to what were called the Salt Shakers or Cocktail Shakers.in the early Camaros. These were filled with sand and helped dampen vibrations in the convertibles.   The undercarriage is not bad at all. We found no visible rust and the floors look solid.   The rust we did find was on the rocker panels.
