I came across this classic at Mecum Auctions in Anaheim a couple of years ago. I immediately thought to myself, "if there was ever a car that epitomised old school street rod styling, this was it". The previous owner added numerous custom touches to this 'shoebox' Ford including frenched tail lights, custom grill, operational side pipes, fluted bonnet, new period correct interior, spotlights and the list goes on. Some artistic 'bling' has also been added by legendary LA pinstriping artist, Wild Bill. When we got the car back to Brisbane we found the 302 Windsor was a little tired. So we have replaced it with a low kilometre, 5 litre out of an Aussie XR8...much better!
