Engine was rebuilt by previous owner at 100,000 miles.  The exterior has a repaint done several years ago of the original color.  The interior has most areas restored.  It's received regular vehicle maintenance and runs excellent.

This is not a police package car, but was restored to resemble a vintage correct police detective car from 1960.  Updates include vintage correct police radio antenna on the trunk (not permanently installed - magnetic mount), vintage correct California law enforcement license plates (display only - not for street use), vintage correct Yankee police rotator, factory correct radio delete plate (the Edsel radio is currently installed), and a vintage correct portable Motorola police radio (non-functional for display only).  If your interest is not in having the car resemble a police car from the era, I can easily remove everything and put it back to stock without any police equipment, including correct Edsel full wheelcovers.

Seat upholstery was redone Edsel correct by the previous owner.  New old stock 1960 only Ford factory floor mat across the front.  The overhead interior light is broken, but I've included a new replacement for it.  Interior door panels were also redone by the previous owner.
