Nice shot of a very unique Ford! I had a red 1957 with white top in mid 1960's. I had a lot of fun with it and should have kept it.

Behind the back seat was a row of 6 ford starter solenoids to handle the voltage to run many switches and motors to make the transformation. One motor in the trunk with flex shafts to raise and lower the deck, one motor to fold the front of the roof, one motor to move the shelf that covered the space when the top was down, and a two motors to turn the lock down bolts to secure the top when it was up. A bear to work on but it sure drew attention when putting it up od down at the local drive in.
