Hey guys! I swear, they're like puppies. 😉 Wanted to share some pics of our latest find/project!

Nice little '64 convertible in very good shape. Found locally (which doesn't happen often) in a heated garage. Originally from Ontario as best we can track. She has not been on the road for a good 20 years. Decent body, excellent chrome and paint that is buffing up rather nicely. The orig 327 and factory 4spd are long gone, but a fresh rebuilt 350 (from a trusted local machine shop) accompanied it in a crate. Hubby Dave will pop that in for the season and we'll go from there. He promises NOT to put a 428 CJ in it!! Everything else is complete including a very new black interior. A nice bonus of updated leather seats (originally factory vinyl from the trim tag.) No build sheet - or much history/documentation at all - with it. That's okay, we'll give it new life!

The 65 Mustang has priority (What?? I know!!) but will post pics if she gets on the road this summer! 😎 I'm working on a name for her...

Ha! Send the StingRay police right over! Honest to God - if I had a magic wand - every Ford in the garage would become a Vette!! :Troll:

Looks great! The nice thing about not much history is that you can make it whatever you want without the guilt of “ruining” something original. :D I love the mid years, they’re my absolute favourite. Looking forward to seeing you get it back on the road!

Was it not once said you could have any color Ford you wanted as long as it was Black?
If it is being seen as only being "Black" ... it sure appears by this photo that the
all Corvette part may actually work out for you ... :thumbs:


(... ya, ya, I know you have a couple others ... a red and a green ... :Cheers2: )

... I'm working on a name for her...
... how about a temporary name "Henry" to appease Hubby Dave
until he has finished everything you need done with it ... and as long as
there's no confusion in the process that "henry(ford)-parts" are actually not for "Henry" :happy:

You're so right Riley - no guilt - no judgement. Just get her on the road with dignity! This one will never be a numbers matching unmolested car or close to anyone's vision of perfect. I too like that it "just is what it is." And why it will eventually be the most driven summer car in the shop. Sure hope my surfboard fits. 🏄

Henry could work... or 'Ed'sel? What? Am shocked cars don't follow you home too! (I have been known to say, a funny thing happened on the way to Costco...) 😅 Hope you're also enjoying your 'red and green' which shall not be named! We could get tarred and feathered!

Dudes - Thanks for the ✌️ Ruff, Luke, Taylor!
