This car was incredibly special in that it had been in the family since it was purchased new back in 1958. It had been purchased locally from Vancouver Ford in Washington State. The car had only been driven 53,000 miles before it was put away in storage decades ago. The Nephew who had inherited the car decided that he wanted to have it restored. The color of the car had been changed years ago from the original copper and white to black and white. It was decided to do the new paint job in the original red and modified white from the same period because that was the most appealing option back then and today. The white had some yellow pigments removed so that the color looked cleaner and brighter but still maintaining a classic look.
