Hello from California!

Found your site while trying to find the original owner of the Mark II that my friend is working on.

We looked up the car in the Mark II encyclopedia set - Unsuccessfully. Although, we were able to find the original color info from the VIN numbers.

Jim has already restored his own personal Mark II and then started this one for his second personal restoration.

Originally, Jim wanted to make it fully retractable. Yesterday, we concluded that with the roof being 59 inches wide, and the trunk opening 56 inches, we concluded the amount of cutting on the car portion of the trunk would be way to labor intensive. With the soft top, being from a 1962 Ford convertible, the project could continue as planned!

When complete, it should be a automatic convertible, beige and brown. I'll attempt to catch as much info as possible of the job!

Good Morning,

So, I have added pics. Can you all see them?

No actual Mark was hurt during the first part of this process! ;-) The car was purchased from a guy in Napa who had started to dismantle with the intention of re-assembling this car. SO, we are just going to finish the project and make her look even MORE fabulous!

Can not see pictures.

Must have before and after the copied address. Are you trying to take the pictures off your computer or off the web?

Photos were actually in an album on the profile pages.

Great project, Craig. Good Luck.

Hey Chuck!

Jim is always inviting people to come look at his cars! The Mark II's and his 1940 Zephyr! Plus the rest 12 cars he has done! Feel free to let me know! Your correct San Francisco is not that far from Sebastopol!
