Description for Ford Fairlane 1959

1959 Ford Custom 300 tudor 2 door coupe in mostly original, nrestoredcondition. 292 Y-block V8 with the Ford-o-matic Automatic trans. No power options. Radio delete. Runs and drives good. Engine runs strong and smooth with plenty of power. Trans shift smoothly and consistent. Brakes work. Stock factory wheels with original hub caps. Tires are older 225/75/R14 bfg radial T/A's with plenty of tread left. Recent dual exhaust sounds good. It drives straight down the road with authority. Speedometer and Gauges all work. Most of lights work. Battery has been relocated to the trunk. Recent work includes: new radiator, ew fuel tank with sending unit and a rebuilt holley 2300 seriescarburetor. It runs strong but can be cold blooded and if it sits for a week or more and it likes a shot of starting fluid to get going. It also has a few minor oil leaks as well. Itdoesn't seem to leak when running but if you leave it parked for week or more you'll see a 3-4 inch spot that will probably get bigger the longer it sits. I am not sure if its oil or atf... could be both.
Body: Paint job is 1980s vintage and a "20 footer" atbest. That means that it looks good from 20 feet away but up close itdoesn't look as nice. The hood andfender tops have been repainted and were not done to a high level of quality. The body is overallstraight with a minor dents, ings,scratches and surface rust consistent with a 55 year old car. The roof has a few small dents. The body has no seriousvisible rust. However, oth rear quarters look to have had someminor rust repairing in the past.Surprisingly the floors look original and are in excellent shape. When I got it I expected to find issues in the floors but I could not find any evidence of patch work in the past. It does have a very thick layer of undercoating on it that has probably contributed to reducing the accumulation of rust underneath. The only rust "through" on the car is on the passenger inner fender under the battery tray which created a golf ball size hole and surrounding surface rust (hince the relocation of the battery to the trunk). The passenger inner fender should be patched or replaced. Trunkfloor is in good shapewith some surface rust but no holes. All Glass is in good shape with the windshield being newer and likely replaced within the last 10 years. Windows all work with ease. All the trim and chrome is present and in fair shape with some rust and pitting.
Interior: Seats have been redone in the past and are in nice shape. Dash is very clean and original. Speedometer has been rebuilt and the odometerreset at that point. It shows 1300 miles or so. The Heater, an and Wipers work (although the wipers arms are off the car in the picture I do have them). Carpet is an older aftermarket cut-pile style and it is in good shape. Door panels are original and are still in usable shape. Headliner is in tact but has stains and a few small tears and should be replaced.
Has a clean Washington title registered in my name. The license plate does not comewith the car. Vehicle islocated at my property in McMinnville, regon 97128.
I've owned this car for about 7 months and have only put about 300 miles on it. I drive it about once a week into town onerrands and it has been a reliable vehicle for that. It is, owever, mostly original, nrestored car that is 55 years old. So... if youdon't live relatively close by you should plan on towing it or transporting it. The vehicle will be stored inside until it is picked by its new owner or transporter.
This Vehicle must be paid for with funds in my possession before it leaves my property no exceptions. This vehicle Absolutely Must be picked up by October 9th
