Return your 1960-1964 full-size Ford car back to its former glory with detailed restoration procedures from author Colin Kleer.

With more than 2.3 million full-size Fords produced from 1960 to 1964, a restoration book for these cars has been desperately needed, and Full-Size Ford Restoration: 1960-1964 fills that void! Colin, president of Pennsylvania's Three Rivers chapter of the Galaxie Club puts his decades of experience restoring these cars into this single volume. Featuring step-by-step procedures on body, driveline, chassis, and interior components, Colin shows, with more than 400 photos and text, how to restore a full-size Ford. Crucial projects, such as rust repair and driveline maintenance, help guarantee that your Ford will be sound and solid for years to come after the restoration.
