Dave Tucker's '65 442 Convertible
I bought the 65 4-4-2 4-Speed Convertible in 1999 in Michigan after a full frame off restoration
was performed. After I purchased the car, I continued to improve it and move it ever closer to
original by adding various details such as an original Chambered Exhaust, new Carpet, original type
Battery, and even crazy details such as Plug Wires and an original type Distributor Cap.
After a full Engine Compartment repaint and basic cleaning, the car is almost perfectly restored to
The car spends most of its time in local car shows in Lower Michigan and northern Ohio. The
Woodward Dream Cruise is a local favorite.
There is still more work to be done like a new wiring harness, red line tires, undercarriage rework,
miscellaneous interior repainting, etc. I just can't seem to ever find the end of this project.
Maybe there isn't one.....But it sure feels good to cruise the local lakes with top down....
