If you're the kind of enthusiast who likes to envision having their name engraved on trophies, take a minute to get to know this killer Ford convertible! Driven mere break-in miles since restoration, and presenting much better than when it originally rolled down Ford's storied assembly lines, this impressive drop-top has been transformed into a take-no-prisoners weekender that can consistently headline cruise nights. You won't be staying under the radar with its professionally finished Flame Red on Raven Black paintwork, which has been correctly applied over a very clean body. There are no obvious signs of wholesale panel replacement, suggesting the car has been a straight, rust-free shell its entire life. Thanks to Jerry's Classic Cars in Springdale, Arkansas, that shell's fit and finish is almost good enough to turn reflections into reality. And ultimately, everything adds up to one super cool cruiser that, thanks to its spectacular combination of color and trim, has an absolutely magnetic presence! Tilt the car's sculpted hood and you'll find a correct, 312 cubic inch Thunderbird V8 that's fully rebuilt and dressed to impress. Behind that beefy Y-block, a stalwart Ford-O-Matic 2-speed sends power to a familiar Ford 9-inch that's fitted with pleasant, highway-friendly gears. The car's suspension remains close to its original configuration, with factory power steering complementing factory control arms and traditional leaf springs. Braking is quick and adequate thanks to power-assisted drums, which occupy all four corners of that chassis. And on the outside of those drums, Coker Classic whitewalls spin around classy wire wheels. This first class drop-top is a nicely polished piece of jet-age magic that's ready to be shown and celebrated.
