OLDER RESTORATION AND ALL WORK DONE BY LOCAL PROFESSIONALS. THIS FORD IS IN "DRIVER" CONDITION. IT IS NOT A TRAILER QUEEN. THIS '68 HAS CUSTOM INTERIOR AND THE TRUNK IS CUSTOM DRESSED. WHAT A LOOKER!

THE XL IS A BLAST TO CRUISE IN. JUST "SHOW & SHINE".

DAD PASSED AWAY AND MOM DOES NOT WISH TO KEEP HIS TOY. THE FORD IS DRIVEN OFTEN. RUNS AND DRIVES GREAT!

THE PAINT IS GREAT, OT PERFECT. THE CAR IS CLEAN AND ALWAYS GARAGED. EVERYTHING WORKS.


OK. FOR YOU CAR GUYS,GALS, ND SERIOUS BUYERS, IKE I MENTIONED BEFORE IT IS IN "DRIVER" CONDITION. THERE ARE A FEWTHINGS YOU MAY OR MAY NOT WANT TO ADJUST.

#1. THE DRIVER SIDE REAR WINDOW WORKS, UT EVERY NOW- AND- THEN IT NEEDS A GENTLE TOUCH TO GET UP THE LAST INCH TO BE SNUG. GOES DOWN FINE. DAD WAS GOING TO HAVE HIS MECHANIC CLEAN AND GREASE THE TRACK, OTOR, ND CHECK IT OUT. BUT IT WAS NOT A PRIORITY SINCE THE WINDOWS AND TOP ARE DOWN MOST OF THE TIME ANYWAY.

#2. THE SHIFTER BUTTON IS STICKY. TRANSMISSION IS FINE. WHAT I MEAN BY STICKY IS THAT SOMETIMES YOU HAVE TO GENTLY TAP THE SHIFTER FORWARD OR BACKWARDIN ORDER TO START THE CAR. AND WHEN YOU PARK IT, AKE SURE YOU FIRMLY PLACE IN "PARK" AND THAT IT ENGAGED BEFORE TAKING YOUR FOOT OFF THE BRAKE AND GETTING OUT OF THE CAR. FOR THOSE OF YOU WHO DON'T KNOW,THE SHIFTER IS AN UPSIDE DOWN "U". THE BUTTON IS UNDER THE TOPPART OF THE HANDLE AND YOU SQUEEZE IT BEFORE SHIFTING OUT OF ANY GEAR. DAD PASSED AWAY BEFORE THIS FIX / ADJUSTMENT COULD GET DONE.

#3.ONECOVER CAME OFF OF THE WINDOW SWITHCHESON THE DRIVER DOOR. IF I REMEMBER RIGHT, T'S THE WINDOW LOCK BUTTON. ALL THE SWITCHES WORK. ALL WINDOWS WORK. DAD WAS CLEANING THE CAR FOR THE SHOW AND SNAGGED THE RAG ON IT. THE COVER POPPED OFF AND FELL SOMEWHERE. AT THE SHOW, ANY PEOPLE LAUGHED AND SAID IT GAVE THE CAR "CHARACTER".

THE 390 WAS PROFESSIONALLY REBUILT. DAD WANTED MORE POWER, UT NOTHING CRAZY. IT WAS MILDLY DONE BY SLIGHTLY BORING IT OUTAND GOING TO A BIGGER LIFTER AND CAM. I CANNOT GUARANTEE THIS OR ASK DAD EXACT SPECSSINCE HE IS GONE. I CAN TELL YOU THE MOTOR RUNS GREAT, AS LOTS OF POWER, ND IS DRESSED UP. DAD AND THE MECHANIC MENTIONED "STAGE 2"?... WHETHER IN TOWN OR DOWN THE HIGHWAY THIS RAGTOP WILL RESPOND!

LASTLY, T'S ABOUT TIME FOR AN OIL CHANGE AND AIR FILTER. AND AS WITH MANY OLDER CARS, HE GAS GAUGE WORKS, UT IT IS SLIGHTLY OFF. YOU CAR GUYS KNOW WHAT I'M TALKING ABOUT. CURRENTLY, HERE IS ALMOST A FULL TANK OF FUEL. I'LL CHECK DAD'S CABINET AND IF THERE ARE ANY BOOKS, ANUALS, TC. YOU CAN HAVE THEM TOO. AND I NEED TO MENTION, HE TIRES ON THE REAR ARELARGER THAN THE FRONT SO IT HAS THAT "HOT-ROD" LOOK. DADALWAYS SAID OLD SCHOOL IS COOL!
