This elegant sedan has been part of the Charlie Thomas Collection for nearly a decade. While the restoration was performed prior to its acquisition, it appears as though it was done yesterday. Presented in blue with soft grey upholstery, there is very little to fault on this Ford. Every detail was given great attention. The wood grain dash and window frames are very well done, and all of the interior components have been restored to as-new condition. The exterior shows exceedingly well, with only a few small age cracks found in the paint. The underside and firewall is fully finished to be as clean as the top. Under the hood, the engine compartment was fully finished utilizing proper hoses, clamps, and colors. Overall fit and finish on this stunning Ford is outstanding. This car should require very little attention to compete in any national Ford event.
