Scott Andersen's 1954 Ford
1954 Ford glasstop restyled by Gordy Brown of Salt Lake City, Utah in the late 1980s. When Gordy designed and created the car, he used his first 1954 Ford Skyliner, "The Time Traveler", his second 1954 Ford Skyliner the "Candy Red", and Ron Lerdahl's 1952 Ford Victoria as inspiration. The rear of the car was fit with 1956 Buick Roadmaster taillights. Under the hood, it was fit with a 1956 Ford Thunderbird 312 engine. When the build was about 75% done, the association with the owner went bad due to non-payment, and the car was completed by someone else. The final finish work was not exactly as Gordy would have done it. Once completed the car was named "Fine Wine."
In August of 2014, current owner Scott Andersen advertised the car for sale. Scott sold it to John Burk of New Mexico. In January of 2015 John displayed the Ford at the 66th annual Grand National Roadster Show in Pomona, California.
