Is that how they were made from the factory? Or is that custom built?
Either way, cool car.
Those were made by Ford right from the factory. They only made them for three years in the metal top convertible, 1957, 1958 and 1959.
The one I shot is a 59. Below is the blue and white 57 and a black and red 58.
Interesting to note the trunk opened at the seam of the rear window, backwards to all other Fords as did the hood, which tipped upwards from the windshield and mechanics had to work on the sides of the front fenders only to service them.
Flock after flock of Sandhill Cranes flew over us as we were camped at Elk Island National Park. their distinctive call can be heard for miles before you see them. Unlike geese, they fly without and formal formations. Note the one lone crane at upper centre right.
