350 cu. in. V-8 engine, automatic transmission, transverse leaf front suspension with semi-elliptical leaf spring and live axle rear, and four-wheel drum brakes. Wheelbase: 114 in.
This example presents an opportunity not to be missed. Finished in deep maroon on a very straight body, this fresh custom is a knockout in all areas. The interior presentation is exceptional with its restored dash that has been kept close to stock, with the exception of the neatly placed Vintage Air climate control panel to the left of the stock steering column. The seats and door panels are nicely finished in oxblood and tan leather. Most impressive is the sparkling clean crate 350-cubic inch GM engine. From the body-color firewall to the brushed aluminum valve covers, each component under the hood is well detailed and ready for show. Power steering, power brakes, power windows, and air conditioning insure this cloth-topped Ford is one not to be missed.
