This was for sale by my friends shop in Sherwood, cool rare car. We were debating about buying it to restore, Dude also had a 54 Ford truck. I hope this gets put back together the way it should!

I owned a '54 Ford pickup but I like this car much better. I hope your friend gets it back on
the road very soon. Looks like he has a great start.

All hail the King of the Fuselage Cars!

I'm thinking "preservation" rather than restoration here, unless the driveline is gone...

The power plant had just been rebuilt when we looked at it. in the car but not wired or plumbed.

look at the expanse of real estate behind the c-pillar. it has a profile like a ford ranchero. bet this thing could soak up the highway miles back when gas was $0.10/gal. the hidden headlights make the grille look menacing. the color scheme is perfection.

Gas was closer to $0.32/gal. in 1970.
It hit $0.50 in 1973, and the economy was racked.

Does it come with the original Miss Hurst Golden Shifter? She would be drawing social security.

These cars are absolutely badass. Hope the guy gets back on the road and drives it regularly, and doesn't keep in a climate controlled garage for 360 days of the year.

Nice to hear that Anon. I was wondering if the car would be put back in running order
soon. I agree with Mike as far as the preservation of this car goes. The body and
other trim pieces look like they'll clean up in no time at all. BTW I like that carport
too! Very classy!

I bought some tires from the fellow who owns this car and I almost didn't leave when I saw this in the car port!

These 300 Hursts featured saddle-colored leather seats out of an Imperial. Curiously, most of these cars had a column shift; far fewer had the optional floor shift & console.

The hood and the trunk lid are fiberglass; the hood is actually bonded /glued to a metal frame. The hood scoop is not functional but the integral trunk spoiler is.

My Mopar molecules are highly charged right now. Very nice find! saw one at a carshow last summer for sale for $150,000!
