This is a project car in need of restoration.  I was going to fix her up as a daily driver until I wrenched my back again and realized that my wrenching days are over.  I replaced the 352 cid engine with a 1967 Ford 390 cid which had been rebuilt.  The reason the car was parked was because of over heating (leak in the heater core).  It is set up with a single wire alternator.  I was told the transmission had been rebuilt and it looks fairly clean so it could have been.

When I was moving the car, the left front wheel came off and damaged the inner and outer fender.  I have an outer fender that will go with the car.  While in storage the rear window was also destroyed by someone throwing rocks.  The rear end needs to be replaced.  I have a complete 1960 Edsel rear end (brake drum to break drum) with the same 2.91 gears to replace what came with the car.  The rear end was locked up when I bought it.  I was able to get it working by removing the pinion gear and reinstalling it.  It It needs a complete interior.
