History The original owner was Henry Heald, the president of the Ford Foundation in NYC. My wife's stepdad was the second owner and I've owned it since 1987. It was a rusted mess when I got it.

The only part that was not removed from this car was the brake pedal.
Exterior

Many replacement panels and rust repair of sections. The trunk alone required 7 panels plus a new lid. The hood and passenger front fender were also replaced.
