Beginning with a clean NO RUST body, this Sunliner Convertible was subjected to a 5-year frame-off nut and bolt rotisserie restoration done with extreme attention to detail, and resulting in an aesthetically pleasing end-product. All stainless trim and chrome pieces were replaced with new components. The body panels are laser straight and all panel gaps are uniform. The Monte Carlo Red finish is flawless. The custom convertible top is crafted by a noted Michigan trim shop using Haartz Stayfast® #848 Black, which is a premium line of 3-ply toppings, constructed of acrylic square weave facing, rubber inner-layer, and cotton backing.
All new interior with black carpet and stunning red, white, and black vinyl on the seating surfaces, door, and kick panels. All metal surfaces are finished in matching Monte Carlo Red. The reconditioned instrument panel is flawless in appearance and functionality. As expected, all gauges, instruments, lamps, etc. are fully operating condition. A high-end Alpine AM FM CD Stereo unit is neatly housed in the glove box.
Engine and Driveline
The engine is a new Ford 438 FE, based on a 390 cu. in. stroker assembly rated at 500 hp with 500 lb-ft torque. It features Edelbrock aluminum heads, dual 4-barrel carbs, "old school" finned aluminum valve covers, and ceramic coated headers. A new C-6 transmission and stock rear end with a 3.56:1 ratio bring up the rear. A power brake setup handles the stopping chores. The engine compartment is nicely detailed with just the right amount of chrome. The undercarriage, underbody, front and rear suspension, and exhaust system of this show quality Sunliner is as sanitary as the topside of the car.
Wheels and Tires
New Polished REV Classic 100 15X8" wheels ride on new radial tires front and rear.
As one of the nicest restored 1960 Sunliners around, this example is guaranteed to exceed your expectations. The Builder/Owner may consider trade plus cash for a late model high-performance Mustang or Camaro Convertible.
