Hooniverse Weekend Edition – Glastonbury AACA Show, and some of my Favorite Ford Cars.

Last weekend, I decided to go to the 38th annual Antique Auto Meet that was held in Glastonbury Connecticut and as you can tell from my other postings, I decided to highlight some of the iron that was at the show for this weekend. This posting is dedicated to some of my favorite Ford cars that showed up for this event.

This is a heavily modified 1939 Ford Deluxe Coupe, and it was for sale. I like the lines of the 39, but I’m not a fan of all the modifications. The interior is the worst offender, but what do you think?

Here is a Ford GT-40. No it’s not the Ford GT that was an actual production car, but a GT-40, or at least a pretty good facsimile. I’m sure it’s $kaycog approved…

There were three 1963 Ford 2-door hardtops in attendance, like this 1963 Galaxie 500 XL Hardtop with a 390 V-8 under the hood (Gorgeous!)

This 1963 Galaxie 500 XL Hardtop with a High Performance 390 (3 Carbs), and a 4-speed Stick (Beautiful)!

and this 1963 Fairlane 500 Hardtop with a 260 V-8 under the hood. Be sure to check out the interiors of each of these three in the gallery.

This is a 1972 Ford Mustang Sprint, one of three cars offered that year by Ford with the primarily white and blue color scheme. The other two included the Maverick, and the Pinto.

This is an unrestored 1971 Ford Torino GT Convertible, that is actually sparsely optioned. It has the 302 V-8, automatic, bench seat, and not a lot of other equipment. It’s still very nice.

And this is one of my absolute favorites… this is a 1957 Ford Fairlane 500 Sunliner Convertible, and it’s absolutly stunning. The red is eye piercing, and the interior is sumptuous it it’s 50s color scheme. While the top isn’t accurate, I still like the fact that its canvas instead of vinyl covered cloth.

There were a couple of Lincolns in attendance and a Mercury Cougar. This is a 1960 Lincoln Continental Mk V, and was probably the heaviest car there.

This is an unrestored 1969 Mercury Cougar XR-7 Convertible.

And this is is a later version of the Lincoln Continental Mk V. I love it, but I’m weird that way…
