HISTORY: Vehicle was built in Ford’s Chicago plant (code 41).

Original owner bought the car from Elmhurst Ford ( Elmhurst IL. ) as a vacation vehicle. It still wears the original dealer sticker on the rear of the car. He worked just a few blocks from home and walked to work. Thus he did not drive the car much. It is my understanding that to him it was more of a vacation and family outing vehicle. When he passed the title was transferred into his daughter’s name for resale from the estate. I then bought the car from her in 2006 with 72k miles.

UPDATES AND REPAIRS:

After going through the car it was very apparent that the vehicle had been stored in the gentleman’s garage for several years. Since my intentions was to drive the car for local car shows and antique car tours I went over the entire car and made sure that all options on the car worked. I then also replaced; tires brake pads & shoes wheel cylinders master cylinder and machined rotors and drums. Replaced upper end gaskets 160 degree thermostat tune-up pcv air cleaner element drive belts and flushed fluids. Set base timing at 10 degrees and rebuilt the carburetor with one step up on the jet. Recharged the A/C with R-12.

MY OWNERSHIP:

Car has been basically trouble free for the 9 years I have owned it. Stored during the winter months under a cover in a heated warehouse. Summer months car gets driven to cars shows cruise nights and car club driving tours otherwise parked indoors. Blower motor switch works on low and high only. I have not been able to find a replacement. Found a 1973 but it is not the same switch.

CONDITION:

Body and paint in very original great shape. One very minor ding up high on the quarter panel but you will have to look very hard to find it. To skyline the sides of the vehicle it is very straight with very minor dings. Paint in great shape shines with no real blemishes to speak of. Painted stripe in great condition. Body does have some minor rust in the lower quarter panels by the wheel opening. Very minor and has not grown in size since I have owned the car. Car is very impressive shows very well and draws a crowd every time.

Interior is in very nice condition; no rips tears or cracks. Carpet has minor wear on driver’s side but still in very nice condition. Doors cards are trouble free seats package tray dash cluster etc. Smells like 1972. Interior shows very well.

Vinyl top in very nice condition; no rips tears or cracks. All corners very tight no lifting no discoloration apparent.

Trim very presentable and in nice condition. Most trim is way above average. Bumper has small ding and a few on the stainless trim. Black outs on grille still black. All trim shows very well.

Trunk in very nice condition with factory coating still in place. No dents or rust to speak of. Factory jack and spare tire.

Engine bay in original survivor condition. This area could use some attention. Very minor surface rust and fading from heat. All mechanicals work as they should. I have not made any attempt to repaint anything under the hood due to the class the car enters at car shows.

Undercarriage does have some surface rust. Floors body and chassis is very solid but does have a coating of light rust due to ownership and garage parked in the Midwest. No real major concerns just cosmetic.

PROVEN WINNER:

This actual car is in December 2014 Antique Automobile Magazine and has won multiple trophies and plaques at point shows judged shows as well as peoples’ choice. Placing from first to third in 70’s original closed. AACA concourse and survivor class and has taken a trophy at every show it has been to. Car is clean and original; my favorite part of the car is the paint inspection sticker from the factory is still on the cowl.
