Great story from Ed Fisher. I just sold my ’55 Crown Victoria and felt the need to own another car. I found a 61 Sunliner and bought it over the phone. I have always thought that they are very under-appreciated cars. Very elegant. Mine doesn’t have the 401, but I just want to cruise, so the 352 is good enough. I will probably sell this one as well and buy another “One I’ve Always Wanted.”

  1. Ed Fisher, thanks for the blast from the past. I owned a 1960 Ford Sunliner, white, black conv top, red interior. I loved that car. I had it in high school. What a ride that was. Thanks Ed

  2. If you ever want a 47 ford cpe that looks like it just rolled off the show room floor. But has A/C and a few more things. Let me know. Because .I have been wanting a 61 Sunliner for a long time.
