This car is a recent build and has been driven just enough to get the bugs worked out. It's a smooth cruiser which turns many heads. First I'll give a list of features then some history----
-All steel 40 Ford with new floor pans, recessed firewall and all new glass.
-Mustang GT 5.0 Liter (old style engine---not overhead cam) engine and freshly built AOD trans. Engine has full computer controls.
-Mustang II front suspension with disc brakes and Ride Tech coil overs, and power rack and pinion steering.
-Ford 9 inch differential with drum brakes, Ride Tech shocks, and leaf springs.
-Exhaust system is custom stainless steel
-Vintage A/C
-Power bucket seats with leather trim
-1950 Buick dash with simulated wood trim extending to back window garnish.
-Power windows and power remote door and trunk locks.
-Cruise Control
-Electric Hood Latch
I have most of the history of the car including pictures of the car with the original flat head engine. The car probably came out of North Carolina. I have a copy of a title issued there in 1984. I bought the car from an engineer in Tuson Arizona who bought the car in the early 90's. He did the major sheet metal work and bought alot of the parts including the engine/trans. He divorced, moved etc. in the mid 90's and the car sat in his garage until I bought the car in May of 2013. I brought the car back in pieces and started putting it together. I finished (if one ever does) the car in Sept 2014. I have since completed a 55 Chevy and have a 73 Vet for my next project. I build cars, drive them awhile then move on to the next project. I've done many and consider myself a professional or at least a semi pro. I build them to drive. They are not show cars but dern nice looking cars that work better on the street than 99% of "show" cars.
I have all invoices for parts from myself and the previous owner. I have documented the modifications made to the car including schematics, driver information, vendor manuals, etc.
