  • Body & Frame: One repaint, original with some detailing (this car is a nice driver)

  • Other: This is one rare car! It’s an original FH coded block car. The 350 package didn’t become available until the middle of April 1960 (late in the production run) and was made thru to the end of production in July. This car is a 3rd week in May car and is still mostly original. It still has all the correct deep groove pulleys, the correct 1102174 generator with the correct 3711266 deep groove pulley, original matching BW T-10 4speed trans. The car has P/S, PB, hazard flasher, deluxe PB radio and rear seat speaker, door edge guards, factory 6K Sun Tach (yes, it’s correct and is listed in the parts book after April ‘60) and not many other options as it was built to RUN! This is evidenced by the many Atco and Cecil County Dragway win stickers on both rear quarter windows.
