Bill Leslie's 1960 Ford
1960 Ford Thunderbird owned and restyled by Bill Leslie of Buffalo, New York. According to later owner Douglas Sills, the story he got was that Bill's parents owned the car; "The car was built in New York and all the paperwork has New York addresses."
Bill moved to California, and his parents later gave him the car. He kept on to the car until 2019. Struggling with bad health, Bill decided to sell the car, as he didn't want to see it getting scrapped. Douglas Sills bought the car from the guy that bought it from Bill. In 2019 Douglas told Sondre Kvipt of Kustomrama that he the supercharger was bolted on the car, "but never was run with it on. He had problems gettin the right pulley on the crank."
