1964 Ford Fairlane 550
History In early Feburary of 2018 my son and I were eating a BBQ lunch in Dade City for a mid day break. My boss was dog sitting a friends dog in Bradenton FL. She spotted Blue in the driveway of a house as she walked passed. Striking up a conversation with the man his wife came out and said it was for sale for a couple of grand. She gave me call and said "You need to look at this old Ford, its nice and its cheap".
We drove to Bradenton to take a look. The old girl didn't look to bad. We had no time or battery to play with it, and my son had to be to work in about two hours, so we made arrangements to look at her next weekend.
WE went back the next week end and installed a battery. She spun right over with no knock. After tracing no spark to a bad coil wire, we tried some gas poured down the carb. It ran for two seconds then would die. we agreed on a price of 2300 for it the way it sat.
On 2/19/2018 it sits in my yard instead of his garage
