Full-Size Ford Restoration: 1960-1964 Review

By  | 



By Mark Weisseg

This latest book offering from CarTechBooks is written for anyone willing to take on a Ford restoration. If you have been watching for the last few years the full size Fords from 1960-1964 have gained momentum. Owners love the big car ride of the era along with the many options. That includes of course engines, transmissions, interiors, colors, and more. Back in the day a person ordering one of these cars had so many choices it would boggle the mind. You picked each option one by one. Not like today as items are bundled together.

So, you finally take the plunge and decide you are going to restore one of these beauties. Where do you even begin? What do you remove first? Where do you buy the replacement parts? What kind of costs are you going to Incur? How long is this project going to take? Clearly much to think about in advance before even removing the first screw or bolt.

Well, author Colin Kleer put together a 192 page track to run on for you. The book is stuffed with over 506 color photos and charts. The book really is the “how to” book so that you know where to start and where to finish. So many projects start off with vigor and spunk only to become long term garage pieces that other items get stacked on.

It’s easy to lose your confidence when you become overwhelmed. So, this complete paper back guide book should be at arms length at all times. One should never just tear a car apart and think you can just replace a part and put it all back together again. That behavior tends to get you stuck and that leads to abandonment of the project. To do any complicated project it’s best to have a plan. This book provides just that. It’s a good book with a lot of ideas and encouragement.

So, go to Amazon. The book only costs $29.95 plus $6.95 for domestic shipping and handling. There were over 2.3 million of these full size Fords built back then and they are enjoying a big resurgence. This book will be your step by step guide book for a successful restoration.
