THIS VECHICLE HAS BEEN SOLD
This car has been SOLD and is now located in the Niagara Falls area.
This car just happened to be built the same week in 1958 as the new owner of the car was born. It was a very exciting week back in the week of January 13th 1958. But I would have to say that this 1958 Ford Custom 300 is in better condition than I am.
History Of The Vehicle
Now you would have to know that this car has had a pretty good life from the start. Information that has been passed down to us is that the original owner purchased this car while on vacation after his car failed to return him home to Toronto. It is believed that he had passed away within a year, with his wife storing the car in the garage for over twenty years. When she passed away the car was purchased by a 17 year old student who had only kept the car for a very short time before it went to a business man in a small town who restored this to the beauty you see today.
There has been a few car enthusiast since the restoration, who have enjoyed the ownership of this 4 door sedan. The thing about this car that keeps it moving to so many owners is the mint condition of it. It is so well restored that you almost don’t want to drive it. Well I was assured by the fellow I purchased it from that it was just waiting for a good road trip. So off I went on the first day with a five hour drive home, yes a smile was on my face all the way. I even made a pit stop at a local car event to show the new ride to buddies of mine.
