Plain Jane: ’64 Ford Custom 390
We love, love, love cars like this. This Ford is built in the style of the great early muscle cars of the sixties. We called them Plain Janes or something else we can’t recall at the moment. One could use a 21st century technology term and call it a stealth bomber. If you are a gearhead, and you must be if you read this often, you wouldn’t be fooled if it pulled up next to you at the stop light. It is too perfectly camouflaged. You would have a sense that when the light turned green, you might be embarrassed. This solid, Colorado car began life as a modestly powered 3-speed Custom. The builder had a vision and turned it into this amazing, cool machine using all correct period pieces and styling cues. It is painted in the original factory color with a completely new, correct interior. The engine is a rebuilt, properly date-coded 390 with approximately 5,000 miles on it. Bored .030 with all new internals and absolutely fresh throughout. It breaths through a Holley carb and Edelbrock intake. Everything about it is old school right down to the powder-coated steelies with dog-dish wheel covers. We have no idea what it will sell for but it won’t be a ton of money. Probably a lot less than the cost of building it. We say pass on that nice BMW 2002 you’ve been watching and go for this one. Thanks Stuart J. for the heads up on this one! Click here for the listing.
