John Guenther's 1959 Ford
Restyled in 1960, the front fenders on John's Ford were extended 5 inches. The grille cavity was frenched and fitted with a tube bar grille. It featured rolled pans front and back. The front pan incorporated scoops. Scoops were also added to the front fenders. The body was nosed, decked and shaved for door handles, and the gas filler cap was moved into the trunk. The taillights were frenched using 1959 Buick components. The rear quarter panel featured dual frenched aerials and it ran molded in lakes pipes. The build was finished in a wild red color, done in enamel due to the weather. It was dressed up with pinstriping, Appleton spotlights, frosted Plexi plates over the headlights, mag wheels and rear nerf bar type bumpers. Under the hood, everything removable was chromed.
In January of 2018 the remains of the car was advertised for sale on Craigslist. It was located in Vancouver, and the asking price was $4800. The body was pretty banged up. Floors, trunk and body mounts were intact and repairable. Seats and roof bows were missing. Click here to check out the listing.
