Sunliner Convertible

Model Year History Overview:
Ford’s history in the ‘60s closely parallels Chevrolet’s.  When the decade ended, the division was producing about 100,000 more cars each year than in 1960.  During the period Ford expanded into several new markets, including economy compacts and sportier versions of regular production models accomplishing this with relatively few wheelbases.  1960 was also the year Lee A. Iacocca arrived as Ford division general manager ushering in a whole new era of vehicle styling and products.
This car was purchased new in 1960 by a Memphis, Tenn. doctor for his wife.  Four years later after she passed away he put the car in storage, up on blocks, for the next 27 years.  When the second owner bought it in 1992 it had only 5,778 miles on the odometer.  He completely restored it to its original condition with new Corinthian White base coat/clear coat paint and a new convertible top and tires.
