History
Car was sold new at The Ford dealer in Aurora Missouri. Was parked outside for several years. I bought from a person in Marionville Missouri in June of 2012, car was running but in very poor condition, but all the parts were there.My brother, (ex bodyman) agreed to do the restoration. As usual, when we stripped the interior out, we found lots of rust in front floorboards, trunk floor, trunk lid, and quarter panels.
