Sale type: Fixed price listing
Technical specifications, photos and description:
This fabulous two owner example came to us from a retired gentleman that has owned this rare car for the past couple of years. It was purchased by the original owner at the local Ford store here in Cedar Rapids and acquired by the second owner from the first owner's widow. It had been sitting in storage for over 35 years and needed to be freshened up for its new life. This car may have some significant history behind it according to some information presented to us from a strong follower of these cars. It was originally built as a 406 Tri-Power car. of that there is no doubt. The interesting story is that in 1962 Ford pulled several of the 406 Galaxies off the line to "experiment" with a dual quad set up. of those cars it is believed 3 were convertibles. Frankly. we can't prove this is one of those cars. but according our source this one has the exact dual quad setup along with the 3 speed overdrive and 4. 11 rear end that were used on the factory cars. Who knows. maybe this car is more significant that just being a correct 406/405 horse with overdrive and 4. 11 gears. Heck that is a ton of history right there.

Dear Gentleman. /p>
I don't know exactly where to start thanking your firm. We want to acknowledge. Ronnie Craig. who went beyond the call of duty. He made the sale of my 1969 Chevy Chevelle SS Red Conv. so smooth. Buying a car that you never see is very risky. Ronnie told me about the car. which was better than expected. I am 73 years old and never had a car like this. The end of the road is almost at the end for me. so said “What the hell” you only live once.
Thanks again Ronnie for being so honest

P. S. Please excuse my hand written letter as I am not too literate on the computer.

Dear Classic Enterprises
In November we received an excellent original 1976 Eldorado convertible from CE in The Netherlands . It had the rare color commodore blue and was as nice as described on the website. The owner is very pleased with it. Hope to do business with CE again!
Dear Classic Enterprises. /strong>
Just bought an SS100 Jag replica from Ronnie Craig - cannot wait to get it delivered to Calgary. just trying to sort transportation. So far experience with Classic Enterprises - has been superb.
(Then received a few days later)
Well Ronnie & team - the ss100 Jag arrived today via TFX Transportation - she's even better than your photos and video depicted.
Thank you guys for your amazing care. assistance and service. A first class company whom I would VERY HIGHLY recommend to everyone looking for a classic vehicle - your service is second to none.
I cannot thank you guys enough!
Dear Curt. /strong>
Just a note to thank you for a wonderful car-buying experience.
My purchase of a 1957 Chevrolet Bel Air was an easy transaction and you and your staff were more than accommodating. The process and the arranging of some changes before the car was transported to me. here in Oregon. was gratifying.
I also appreciate your referral to Allied. who picked up the car within four days and delivered the car. without a hitch. in their enclosed carrier. Prior to contacting Allied. I had three brokers who promised delivery. but couldn't get the job done - a wasted three weeks.
As an out-of-town. long distance buyer. it was not cost effective to make the trip from Oregon to Cedar Rapids. Iowa to personally inspect the car. In that situation. between the numerous photos you provided and an independent inspection. ordered by me. by a professional classic car inspection co. . I felt the purchase - sight unseen - would still be a good way to go. I was not disappointed.
Thank you also for your many calls and emails to me throughout the process to make sure I was happy with the process and that the transaction was going smoothly. I would highly recommend your services and the quality of your inventory.
Warmest regards. br>Curtis A. Jacksonville. OR
Dear Ronnie. /strong>
I just wanted to drop you a line or two regarding my recent purchase of my 1969 Chevelle. My initial call was answered by Curt. a real gentleman. and after me explaining my needs he transferred me to what he called his "Ace". That was you Ronnie and was he correct. after only five minutes on the phone I felt comfortable and trusting of what you what you were telling me.
To me. the car buying process must feel right. and if it doesn't. you'll know soon into the transaction. Your knowledge and experience really paid off for me. my family and I love the car and would recommend your organization. and you. to our friends and family. I have recently joined a local club and two of the members knew of you and had purchased cars from you in the past.
Jon did an excellent job putting the final touches on the car and too was easy to talk to. With your pricing being in line and in many cases better than the other collector car dealerships. I can say. I will be back.
Thank you again. br>Phillip D.
Dear Ronnie. /strong>
I recently purchased a 1991 Corvette ZR1 from Classic Enterprises. The car was as advertised and we have been very pleased with the purchase.
Ronnie handled the first part of the transaction and Curt finalized the ownership transfer of documents. Therefore. we had an opportunity to meet. work and get to know each of them.
They demonstrated a sincere knowledge and interest in the classic car business. I would not hesitate to purchase another car from Classic Enterprises or refer them to a friend.
Dear Classic Enterprises. /strong>
I am very happy with the professional people at Classic Enterprises. Ronnie is very knowledgeable about these cars. and very helpful with the sale.
Thanks Classic Enterprises!
