Here is your chance to own a rare California surf wagon that turns heads everywhere it goes!! This car is super clean . The original 390 V8 starts instantly, runs great, and has ample power rebuilt approximately 5K miles ago.
At the same time, I had the original Cruise-O-Matic transmission rebuilt.
The car is equipped with aftermarket (under dash) gauges (oil pressure, voltage & water temp.) - I always like to have these for peace of mind.
There is also a rare factory under dash air conditioning unit (rebuilt), connected to a new Vintage Air system under the hood.
The suspension was lowered about 2" by previous owner by shorter coils in front and de-arching the rear leaves, giving it a really sweet low stance.
Cosmetically, as far as I can tell, the car was repainted once in the original white. The paint is in great condition but we did repaint the door jambs (see photos) as they were a bit scruffy. They are now super clean, and what a difference when you open the door and see that!
-removed the old (faded & peeling) woodgrain vinyl and replaced it with new, using 3M's Di-Noc vinyl.
Before installing these and the new carpet, we applied Dynamat to the doors and floorboards of the car for sound & heat insulation.
-removed and reassembled the window mechanisms, replacing the channels and fuzzy strips, and also installed new rubber door seals.
-all the interior garnish mouldings repainted before being reinstalled with new chrome screws.
-The new carpet is from ACC carpets, in Ivy Gold and has matching floor mats with the stitched-in Ford crest logo.

It is turn-key and ready to go.

Here are things we did not do, which you may or may not want to:
