Found in a farm yard North of Cochrane Alberta, we purchased “Big Red” from its first owner in original condition.
The last time it saw the road before we purchased it was in 1976 after which it sat in a quonset for 21 years.
The car was completely original and came with a 283 V8 and a “3-on-the-tree” standard transmission.
The original owner took very good care of it while it was in storage.
The frame on restoration/re-creation project began in April 2009.
We started by having what little rust it had removed and having new panels fabricated. Currently, about 90% of the car still has original paint.
In the areas where rust has been repaired the new paint was skillfully blended into the old.
In 2008, after much searching, we found the 409 engine that now brings life to this old classic.
The 409 is a dual quad with headers and is backed up with a 5-speed Tremec transmission with overdrive.
