COMMENTS: I found this car on the internet, for sale by a broker in NY. I bought it and had it shipped by truck to Tulsa, OK and I trailered it back to Missouri. I began the restoration in 2002. I totally dismantled the car, media blasted it and reassembled it, replacing or refurbishing every nut, bolt and part. I rebuilt the engine and I had the transmission rebuilt. I performed all the work myself except for the paint, bodywork, headliner and upholstery and transmission rebuild. I had the machine work on the engine performed at O'Reilly's in Springfield, MO. I just finished the car in November, 2006. I'm having alot of fun driving it and attending cruise in's. I won a second place in the All Ford Show 67-68 class last year in Springfield, Missouri

Perkchiro Thanks for the kind compliments Joe. You've got a jewel in that car of yours and should be very proud. I don't want to get in a race with you however, I'd be sure to lose!!! 03/18/2007

Car looks great. Every time I see photo's of other folks cars in primer it reminds me of the shape my CS was in at one time. We're suppose to be up in the 50's by the end of this week. I just might get some road time maybe.

John McGilvary Nice job, you should be proud of your effort. Very cool loking CS. John 02/18/2007
