Default Just emailed my Grandmother....

Telling her that she should purchase this car and have it transported to Alberta.
I've looked at LOTS of these cars over the years on ebay, and they all seem to have the ever so popular 351 CID engine with column shift automatic, all are matching painted roofs as well.
In 1975 my grandparents bought a 75 Ford Gran Torino Sport with white Vynil roof, Auto on the floor, and the moster 460.
I clicked on that link and said, WOW, it looks IDENTICAL (almost the same color), wouldnt it be wierd if..OMG it has the 460, shift on the floor,the roof...WOW
It needs restoration work, but thats a fairly rare optioned out car, that would bring back lots of child hood memories that im sure ive forgotten but would remember in that car...they sold it in 1994 and the car got crushed because my uncle needed the money, im still not happy about that move on his part..regardless here it is

Ad says, "if you have questions, please ask." Ask him in what universe does 460 ci = 5.7L

Also, does your grandma own a refinery

Reminds me of a friend of mine. He had a 71 with +250K miles on a 351 and it would still roast the tires.
