This particular example is exceptionally rare and unusual in that it has been restored with absolutely no expense spared and with faithful attention to detail by its former collector owner at the renown Nick Alexander shop in Huntington Park , CA. It was previously a very original honest car and no history of any accidents or rust ever and with it being possible that the car may have only very few original miles! The floor boards, trunk and all the typical rust-prone areas are and always have been completely solid and rust-free.
The car has a beautiful and very professional repaint at Nick Alexander's restoration shop in it's striking original two-tone 'Seafoam Green & Timberline Green' color paint and has a beautifully restored and as new 'Tan' vinyl interior correctly restored with correct original material including the rear spec linoleum cargo floor and with all its original factory instrumentation intact and working, including the original 'AM' radio, all of which are is in quite exceptional and with the car faithfully restored to factory original specification condition throughout. All the chrome has been re-chromed and the car's original overhead valve 6 cylinder engine was rebuilt under its previous ownership.
The 215 6 cylinder overhead valve engine is extremely strong and powerful and sounds absolutely magnificent and this particular car drives absolutely magnificently - must be seen and driven to be fully appreciated - does not miss a beat and purrs like a kitten - drives straight as an arrow with no strange road wobbles, shakes or rattles - a truly remarkable daily driver that will give any modern day car a run for it's money! The transmission shifts smoothly through the gears and the car is an absolute pleasure to drive!
This is an extraordinarily rare opportunity to own what must be one of the very finest Ranch Wagon's, if not the finest, to ever come to the market and which recently placed 'First Place' at the 'George Barris Car Show' in Culver City, CA. A true all American classic car for the Ford enthusiast or simply any classic car enthusiast to enjoy today!
