A solid New Mexico
car. The prior owner purchased this car in 1992, drove it home and let
it sit until I bought it. It comes with a clean 1992 NM title. All the
hard work has been done, you can drive it "as-is" or finish it. Original
mileage unknown. PS/PB/power seat

I would
call the car a driver/project car. I have driven it around my
neighborhood and it runs, drives and stops well. You can drive it the way it
is or it is a great solid candidate for you to restore.

engine may or may not be original to the car as it is painted Ford
blue, the 58-60 FE's were painted black so somewhere in the past the
original engine was removed, This is most likely the original which was
rebuilt and re-installed or it could be an early 390, I cant be sure,
all I know is the engine was rebuilt in the past, it starts right up ,
no smoking , knocks or leaks, it does have one slight lifter tap but
after 28 years of sitting thats all I have found. The transmission
shifts smoothly, no leaks or noises. The heater blower is 2 speed and
works fine, the heater core does not leak. When I was installing the new
carpeting I noticed the floors were in good condition. No noticeable
lower body, fender, door bubbling or rust,the paint is faded and has some chipping.
Below is a list of the work Ive done.
Edelbrock aluminum manifold, new Edelbrock 4 bbl carb, new fuel pump
and fuel lines, new fuel tank with new sending unit, fuel line was
cleaned and flushed, new water pump, new electronic ignition and coil,
new plugs and plug wires, HD cooling fan, new battery, new chrome 80 amp
alternator with polished brackets, new engine wiring harness, new temp
and oil sending units, chrome FE pentroof valve covers, I installed a
PCV system. All the original fasteners I replaced are now stainless
steel allen heads, New upper/lower radiator hoses, new thermostat, the
radiator was removed and flushed clean. New trunk kit, comes with new
taillight gaskets and installation screws.
I removed the
instrument panel and went through it, I all the wires are intact, no
cuts or splices, all the gauges and lights work.   the speedometer worked when bench tested but not after I installed it , I dont know if the cable is bad or not. The horn also works.
Great sounding dual exhaust
I installed a good used dash
pad, 1960 door panels with new handles, the window rollers are new, new
black ACC carpeting. The original interior was dyed red/black. New trunk
mounted radio antenna
I replaced the turn signal switch
with an NOS one, a prior owner had run these wires in a sleeve on the
side of the steering column so I did also. the turn signal/brakes lights
work fine and will cancel after turning. The only thing I didnt work on
was the windshield wiper motor. The headliner was in surprisingly good
condition. The tires where replaced and are in very good condition.
They are mounted on late model rims that will accept disc brakes if you want to
upgrade. The car is set up for an aftermarket radio and Sirius
satellite.I installed a rebuilt power steering slave cylinder and pump.
If you use the BIN option I will include a rebuilt power steering control
valve ,  a new power brake booster and master brake cylinder ready
for you to install, a spare door panel, arm rests and door trim, a spare working power seat track and switch and many smalls. I will also include all the take-off parts, generator etc. Also comes with new trunk lock assembly and keys. I
rebuilt the power seat track and it now works just fine.
The Bad:The
passenger side window is cracked, the drivers' side vent window lock is
broken, there is 25 years worth of tree sap on the rear window, there
is a minor rust hole on the rear deck top about the size of a quarter,
the door locks dont work. No outside rear view mirrors. The drivers door
has a small crease at the front were somebody forced the door open,
easily repaired. The original seats are dry from sitting in the NM sun
for almost 30 years. They are serviceable but should be re-upholstered
or replaced if you want to the paint is 20 footer . Drive it as-is or restore. I try to descibe my cars as completely  as possible, if you have any questions please contact me.

Buyer is responsible for shipping to his location. I can store the car for you for 90 days.
