1965 Ford Daytona Coupe
Please do not contact me regarding a trade UNLESS you have a quality Porsche356 running project or a quality Jaguar XKE project that you would consider trading even up.
For the last four years I have been building this Factory Five Racing (FFR) Daytona Coupe.It was to be my personal ride.However, at 74 years old, I find my legs aren’t as forgiving as they used to be.It has become difficult to get in and out of the car and therefore I am looking to trade for a more accommodating ride.
This car is an outstanding example of the FFR fiberglassDaytona replica.Of main importance is that it has a current transferable New York State Registration in my name and is approved as a 1965 Ford Two door sedan with matching data plate and frame stamped serial number.Obviously, smog exempt.Since the car’s main attributes (4 inch tubular frame, etc.) can be found on the FFR website I’ll only comment on upgrades and personal touches.Make sure you check out the aluminum inner body panels on their website.
The car sports a 1993 Mustang HO 5.0 fuel injected roller engine with BBK upgrades.The engine has been disassembled, clearances were checked and all gaskets, seals and the oil pump were replaced.The five speed transmission is coupled to a Mustang limited slip rear end with new 3.55 gears andYukon 5 lug axles.The special four link rear suspension and Koni adjustable coil over shocks attach the differential to the frame. Front suspension sports special FFR lower tubular control arms and adjustable uppers, again with fully adjustable Koni coil over shocks. Wilwood dual master cylinders with aluminum racing pedals provide fluid to GT disc brakes at all four corners.Eleven inch rotors in the front, 11.65 inch in the rear.
Cobra tires, P235/60R15 in front, P295/50R15 in the rear, are mounted on Halibrand Style wheels.The five lug 15x8 (front) and 15x9 (rear) wheels have lug nut covers with functioning knock off spinners.
Seating is by Kirby aluminum racing buckets covered in black leather (snap off covers).Five point Simpson lap and shoulder harnesses hold you in place.The interior also is fully carpeted, has a black headliner and has leather door panels, a full set of Speedhut gauges, Vintage Air, air conditioning, heat and defrost.
The exterior is painted Viper red with Shelby style black racing stripes and white “meatballs” with black numbers.Era correct sponsor decals finish the period correct exterior.Entire paint job is base coat clear coat. Please note this carhas just beencompleted and should pass inspection. The following minor touches need to be done before putting it on the road: (1) front end alignment; (2) charge air conditioner and (3) grease chassis. I've tried to give an honest description of the car, please ask as many questions as necessary as all sales are final and obviously, there are no returns. Transportation is the responsibility of the buyer and if you trade, transportation of both vehicles is also your responsibility.
