Description

A black and white two tone bench stretches across the passenger compartment. It is covered in shiny vinyl and has puffy black bolsters and upper backs and white inserts. It is a power actuated bench. The door panels it stretches between are white ribbed vinyl on the lowers, black vinyl for elongated armrest and sills and a middle panel that houses the power seat toggles and door actuators is a machined swirl pattern aluminum. The window toggles are within the lower white vinyl. This machined swirl pattern aluminum continues through the center of the dash where some knobs, pulls and the upgraded but still retro AM/FM now transistor radio and climate sliders are located. The top of the dash is padded black vinyl and in front of the driver is a nice fan design speedometer, flanked on either side by a round tachometer and clock on the other side. Underneath the speedo fan is a horizontal panel with gauges to keep track of other vitals and fuel level. A smaller more manageable steering wheel replaces the original but maintains its retro look. The larger original steering wheel will come with the car. On the center of the hump in a sea of black carpeting is the floor shifter with a black ball topper. This car is optioned with seat belts. Classic yet futuristic for this interior, and certainly nearly perfect. A shout to the trunk which shows as fully restored and linked in ribbed rubber which is all pristine.
A flip of the hood, and you will be met with a very clean red painted block 312ci V8 topped by a single 4-barrel carburetor, beautiful chromed air cleaner cover, and a Ford-O-Matic 3-speed automatic transmission. On the back the rear axle is a Dana 44 with 3.31 gears. This has the factory engine dress up package with the cast ribbed valve coverings and the chromed flying saucer-esque air cleaner covering. Right down to the FoMoCo plastic window washer bag all is very authentic. The wipers have gone from vacuum to electric.
