this is a power disc brake car with original pedals including the clutch pedal
ford 9" rear end
this is a factory a/c car but the pump is missing
It has what looks to be factory GT badging on the lower front fenders( very little info on these cars I am not a ford guy sorry)
this car has very little rust please see pics...lower right rear quarter is thru and right rear floor pan has some small pin size holes.
frame is solid and the rest of the car is rust free
including the trunk pan (see pics)
I just put brand new exhaust front to back with new turbo mufflers sounds very mellow and very good.has a great rumble....car fires right up and idles great.
also I just put 4 new radialwhite wall radial tires on it so I could take her out for a drive and not worry about tires.
just changed oil and filters..serviced the trans and rearend.changed coolant and now it needs to be driven more
I have many pics of this car
it has had 1 repaint and it was a cheap paint job at one time in her life..
it is a running driving project...that you can drive and work on or enjoy as it sits..
THE CAR IS A GREAT CANIDATE FOR RESTORATION....or drive as is..
it will need front end work to make it steer better she is a little sloppy..i had her up on my lift and the pitman arm looked a little loose..
but she hums down the highway...
lights work too...
top is about 1 yr old..
interior is original and worn (see pics)
the top hydraulics are not working the rams are disconnected so you can put it down manually but everything is there I do not know if its the pump or just no power to the rams.
all the glass is good no cracks just dirty from being in storage..
the closing headlight doors are missing and were replaced with a regular grill....but the vac.canister and arms are still in the car.just the doors have been changed and I do not know why.
the motor is correct with the original ford numbers castings in the block as is the 4 speed trans all original and has correct ford ID plates on the transmission.
I have no other info on this car I bought it from a warehouse full of cars......
I have a clean and clear CA. title in my name.....Current registration in my name and current insurance ..it does get driven and is in my rotation of classic cars...but I have no room for indoor storage this winter...I am out of room so I need to find her good home..
