We like to hear from each of you on what your current projects are. One of our friends from down in the Dallas area and long time Ford guy, Marty Burke has two projects I think any of us would be proud to have in our garage.
First up is a black Cyclone he took in on trade for his 1968 1/2 Mustang. It has been in the Dallas/Ft Worth area all of its life. It was bought new by a doctor who then sold it to another docter in 1995. The second owner passed away and Marty basically got it through the estate via an intermediary who bought the Mustang. It wasn’t cheap but it is a really nice car.
Marty has had this Torino GT for about 15 years but just recently decided to restore it. It is a 1969 Torino GT Q code with automatic and is a beautiful rare Black Jade /white bucket seats. To top it all off it is a numbers matching motor. The Marti Report states it is 1 of 1!
He purchase it in Ennis TX along with another R code Cyclone. Being head judge for the Fairlane Club what could he do but a complete concourse restoration on it using mostly NOS parts. I bet this will be one of the best in the Country when Marty is done with it.
Marty also has a long list of reproduction and replacement parts for the Ford Torino, Talladega and Spoiler. He can be reached at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
