For Sale: Sharp '59 Hardtop in NE Ohio
Just wanted to give all Squarebirds.org Forum readers a chance to see this nice '59 Square 'Bird Hardtop before I post it on eBay.
This SqBird, (VIN: H9YH115483) is a nice older restoration, belonging to my Dad, who has lovingly cared for this car the past twenty years.
The car is located in NE Ohio, where it was originally sold by George Waikem Ford, of Massillon, Ohio. We believe the odometer mileage, 63,705 is the actual mileage, which means the car has only been driven an average of about 1,350 miles per year. It has a clear Ohio title, but at the time ownerships were transferred, mileage documentation was not required. Dad is only the third documented owner, and still garages the car in the local area.
Here's a description:
Mechanical: Top-notch, very clean (could use a professional detailing), original 352/Cruise-O-Matic, with solid documentation on maintenance records. Replaced cooling, electrical, power steering, power brakes, fuel, shocks, and exhaust subsystems. Recent alignment, Five, low-mileage, OEM-type, Goodyear Custom Power-Cushion wide WSW bias-ply tires. Other documentation includes factory shop manual and wiring diagrams.
Interior: Tasteful interior trim, unusual Gray-checked Cloth (4X-code). Black vinyl bolsters and piping, professionally replaced. New black foam dash padding. New black carpet and correct white floor mats. Original door panels/arm rests and trunk lining appear nearly new. Some interior trim as been re-chromed, some show shows minor pitting. All gauges work. Original electric clock replaced with Quartz movement. Original, 6-button radio replaced with AM/FM Cassette. (Originals have been thoughtfully saved.) Day/Night mirror. Front safety-seat belts.
Exterior: Original Colonial White, professional resprayed in mid-eighties. Has some minor imperfections, expected with this age restoration. Always garaged and covered. Some minor surface rust. Bumpers re-chromed several years ago. Exterior chrome trim does show some pitting. Correct "Sun Ray" wheel covers and fender skirts, correct, dual FoMoCo rear view mirrors.
In summary, this is a very sharp un-molested, complete, and historically accurate Square 'Bird specimen. While NOT top-notch show quality, it is an above-average, older amateur restoration showing only minor flaws in paint and trim. Always garage kept, with limited, good-weather driving and super-attentive maintenance.
With it's timeless Colonial White exterior, its perfect for Wedding duty or with a little more work it could be an award-winning show car.
Asking $20,975. Call 1-888-273-0066 (day or night).
