Here's the photo that I saw. I should have said that it wasn't a photo of the whole car.
I saw this and at first thought it was a Ranchero but then noticed the rear window. Could this be it?
It might also be an Aussie Ute......
I know the pics bigrrr posted was modified from a Custom sedan, but that door jamb in the above pic does not appear to be '57 Custom, and I don't think the one that he's trying to find was modified in that area. Would like to see more of everything in that pic.!
Also, the bottom corner of the windshield on the 57-58s is rounded, not sharp. The striker plate is not like Fords either. The late model steering wheel appears to be a GM, and not too many Ford guys would put a GM wheel in a Ford. Maybe a Chevy in that pic? Hard to concentrate on looking at the car.
It is not.....the real thing.
Thanks for tracking down the photo ... interesting it has the curved glass, but the pillar is more angled.
Wish I had a photo of the completed car. I always assumed he put a stock Ranchero window in, never noticed the difference. I wonder what he put in for rear glass?
Oh, my Lord.......
The opposite of the Fairlane above...
The Turquoise 58 is a Meteor. Rare car for sure.
A Norwegian car i saw in Sweden

Unusual headlight doors......peaked.
Those are a character flaws. Not sure what I think of the Car overall. In general I like that kind of profile but there's just something different about this one. It's not talking to me yet. Could it be it's just to Plane Jane ?
Well these talk to me.Loud n clear... and. rare.Perfect in every way... but ... then Minters would never let you down.
Right on Jeff! Loud and clear. How often do you find an E code in the mix?
Maybe the Blue 57 is just to 80's. To close to the Pro Street thing.
Down at the rock pile....
It is..and I knew the owner..... I own the hood and a bunch of parts off that car when it was bought from Cali ...it was a 40k stocker....
Well, I always say start with the Best you can find and it sounds like he did. I think he just missed the Bull's Eye.
I thought pro street was a no no here !
Correct.... sorry Loudbang....
When they were new.......notice the hand lettered tires on the hauler!
