Before
History This car was purchased new in NYC by the President of the Ford Foundation. My wife's stepdad was the second owner and I am the third, having owned it since 1986. It was a basket case when I got it, stored for a long time in various garages and barns, and I finally restored it recently.
Exterior
Original color Wimbledon white but with a modern clear coat. Wire wheels from a '65.

Interior
Original cloth and vinyl changed to all leather seats with the same pattern. The dash ws split, so I carved out the curled sections, filled with Great Stuff fire resistant foam, shaped it, and had it covered with matching vinyl, French stitched.

In-Car Entertainment
MP3 stereo with bluetooth, GPS and back-up camera.

Under the Hood
Original engine and transmission completely rebuilt, forged pistons, balanced, hydraulic roller cam, roller timing set, adjustable roller rockers. FAST EZ EFI fuel injection and MSD ignition. Electric cooling fan, March serpentine belt system, Vintage Air Gen IV.

Suspension
All stock except cut one coil from the front to lower slightly, plus heavy duty sway bars.

Wheels and Tires
KH replica from Coker tire, '65 for better offset. 225-70R15 radial tires.
