Default My most recent acquisistion

I've lusted after one of these for 40+ years. Finally I've found the right one for me. This one was in the same family since the very early 1960's. It is 99% stock, the only modifications being minor and quickly reversed things. It performs beautifully and is a former AACA Senior winner, having been driven 7000 miles since.
This checked off a (large) box on my bucket list for certain.

I believe this year was the best style for flat head Fords.

Mike,


Super! And if per chance it was Canadian built, the greyhound is correct.
