Approved by Ford President in 1967 to be built specifically for export to South Vietnam during the height of the war. Took a very influential customer to convince FoMoCo to make an exception on this car.
Rumor has it that this car may have ties to R. McNamara (Former President of FoMoCo and Secretary of Defense during the war)

We installed a new Hi-Performance 289 and 4-Speed Toploader, Updated the interior (Kept it looking factory but not over the top new) to make a great, clean driver car. The patina and history on this car was too special to perform a full restoration. We wanted everything to look 60's period correct. Also installed new brakes, wiring harnesses, radiator, tires, carpet, etc...
This car was in Vietnam for more than 2 years, driving around Saigon before the 2nd owner had it shipped home. Lots of stories to go with it.
This car has been titled 3 times:
- Original owner (Ford exported to Vietnam)
- 2nd owner (Bought in Vietnam)
