About “Sunny”

(DISCLAIMER! This is NOT the actual car. I don't have any pictures of it anymore. I found this one on line)

This was my first car. My Grandmother bought it new on New Years Eve 1964, and it was she that named it "Sunny" My dad spent most of the following weekend installing those knobbly clear plastic seat covers and seat belts in the car for her. She was a simple woman with simple tastes, so she didn't want or need anything fancy. My dad talked her into getting a few dealer-installed options just for safety's sake, like a driver's side rear-view mirror, a day-night mirror inside, two-speed wipers with a windshield washer, back-up lights, and a heater. That's right, folks - all of that was optional! It didn't have a radio. The only options on the car from the factory were the 194cid inline-6 and, believe it or not, a grille guard on the front bumper!

About “Survivor”

I came across the car in an estate situation. One owner with 34000 miles.
I recently sold this car to a young friend of mine who is changing the power train and upgrading the brakes and wheels but keeping the original parts.

I never got any "Official" numbers on the car. It was kinda slow, but it was quicker than my brother's 289/2-barrel/automatic '68 Mustang, which I proved to him several times!
