History
Original family owner. Bought new in May of 68. Car built first week of May 1968 at Fremont factory. WT 400 with Dearborn three speed manual. 3:55 non posi. Only had three options; Remote mirror, Radio, Goodyear radial tires. Driven until 2000. Restoration was started in 2001 and car has sat since then. I brought it home in 2019 and have restarted the project.
No rust, no body damage. Engine is a stock rebuild. Frame removed and rebuilt keeping the drum brakes. Plan to add power steering and factory gauges.
