Looks better than my stock one did. If I ever get rich (HaaaHaa Haa Ha etc.) I am going to have one like this one.

Believe me...It's been broken many times before...

My first car was a '60 SUNLINER...So this one is hitting a little hard...

I have heard of heterosexual, homosexual, trans-sexual, AC/DC, celibate (that's me), and bisexual.

I think as pretty as this car is, I would have to be tri-sexual...willing to try anything...

Please excuse me...I am feeling a little misty...sob...shudder...

There was this one late night in the garage, I better stop right there.

That is one badd ass custom,even with the few chevy parts on it. Great choice of drivetrain too.

Since i'm $110,000 short of outbidding anybody on it here's my critique...

Wheels don't suit the car , are they supposed to look like a 68 Shelby Starburst? I'd think Torqthrusts would be better here, even though they are way too common nowadays.

It's a stick! Cool

460 is pretty generic... at this price we aren't building a budget rod... get a 427 Cammer for it. At least it isn't a damn Chev! The air cleaner and engine bay panelling are probably something everyone will laugh at in a few years... trendy mods have their price.

I like it but would have stopped 25 modifications ago, left the headlights where they show, maybe used stock-shape bumpers and narrowed them, a more classic FE engine and not lengthened the already long wheelbase.

Vehicle Description

What has been done? The best modifications are impossible to see unless you have a stock Starliner next to it. From the grill to the rear bumper, it?s changed. Subtlety is the master of modifications. Sam and Chip Foose have the market on design in simplicity.

  • Grill hand made
  • Reverse hood design and opening
  • BMW head light assembly
  • 2 Camaro bumpers to make front bumper?same for rear
  • New front, hand made nose piece under bumper with running lights?all steel Hood flows into windshield
  • Windshield hand made in Europe (have extras)
  • All flush fit with stainless steel, hand made trim (stock has bulging thick rubber)
  • Front wheel wells moved forward and reshaped to balance look of car
  • Front chassis hand made using GM "A" arms upper and lower
  • Front steer Saginaw steering
  • Air ride tech on all 4 wheels
  • Engine compartment all finished off (hand made pieces)
  • Large cross flow truck radiator
  • Roof line dropped in front approximately 2 5/8" and laid back almost 6"
  • Wing windows removed?custom glass on all 4 sides
  • Hand made side mirrors.
  • Rear wheels moved back 2 ?"
  • New 9" Ford rear end with 4 wheel disc brakes
  • Chassis front and rear redone?only portions of side rails were used
  • Hand made rear splash pan with exhaust coming through it
  • Hand made tail lights
  • Brand new 540 hp aluminum head 460 Ford
    Richmond 5 speed
  • All window treatment and roof line hand made
  • 245 ZR 45 17X8" front wheels
    295 ZR 45 18X11.9 rear tires
  • Engine set back 2 ?" from stock
  • The rear valance on Starliner is all painted 3 dimensional to replicate the stock aluminum panels
  • The stock front and rear bumpers were big and thick and served as the bottom of the car prior
  • Remote stereo and cd player (extensive)
  • Paint is labor intensive, as you know, and shows depth?deep enough to fall in
  • Interior all custom, including custom dash. Instrument panel sunk in was made especially for this car and is all electronic
  • The upholstery is leather and wool?including the trunk and trunk lid. All done by Gabes and under the direction of Chip.


This car, when you look down it?s side, is straight as an arrow?didn?t come that way from the factory. I could go on and on. So, if you have specific questions, I?m sure I can answer them. The car is very drivable, and for a heavy car, it?s quick. This car is all steel and is a ?one of a kind? work of art?not a cookie cutter. The accolades when other builders see this car are astonishing. This vehicle was only built in 1960?in a limited number?by Ford.

The car is a Super Rod and is an example of the kind of changes that have bridged the gap between Customs and Rods, creating styles that are breath taking to see and equally impressive to drive.


I agree with the wheels. I haven't gotten into the over size wheels and rubber band tires yet. The grille I definitly don't care for. It is too low in the front.

I guess what caught my eye is the modified roof line and superb body/paint work. It should also have some type of unique power also. Crate engines don't get it here.

It's just like women. I like 'em a little on the trashy side...

Not a fan of the over sized wheels or the grill either. And as for motor I was just happy it had a Ford in it.
When and why did 15" become to small

I gotta agree with Scoop, it seems that many of the "high end" car builders (Foose, Trepanier, Coddington etc)do a lot of "artsy" mods that to me at least, seem to simply be done do be different. Personally, I mainly perfer my cars to basically stock looking, bodywise. Of course, nobody pays ME outragous sums of $$$$ for a one of a kind custom machine, so my opinion may not hold much value to the rich car aficianotos of the world! As for wheels, I don`t much care for the current trend of huge (& heavy!) rims that use ultra low profile "rubber band" tires. I like to see a bit of sidewall myself. 15 inchers still seem just fine with me.

Wheels don't get it. Foos is in the wheel business, also. Just because it's Foos doesn't necessarily make it look right. Also, would like a different color. Not crazy about grill, either, but couldn't design a better one. LOL! Sharp car.

I like this version better. I owned a white one (street version) and it is on the list of cars I would like to re-visit if I live long enough.

My first car was a 60 SUNLINER and I loved that car. Traded it in a 64 GALAXY. Then a buddy and I built this stock car (He has a thing for 61 STARLINERS).

Even an EDSEL from this period looks nice if dressed properly. Could you imagine this thing on the street with a 430 MERC SUPER MARAUDER engine?

Did Ford actually produce a 60 Edsel Starliner, or has that photo been modified? If so, I certainly have never seen one! Considering how rare ANY 60 Edsel is, that would be one tough car to find!

It was actually a re-trimmed STARLINER/SUNLINER.

Yes, it appears all 243 produced (2DR HDTP) were STARLINER roofs. I thought the formal roof was also used, but I seem to be wrong.

Can you see lifting the hood on this thing and seeing a LINC 430 with a 3 X 2 setup on it?

There's a pretty sharp '60 Mercury in the current "Rod&Custom" magazine. I had forgotten what they looked like.

I had NEVER seen a '60 2-door Edsel before this thread. That red'n'white with the polished 5-spokes is a sharp car!
