    I like that '60. Starliner? Can't quite see that rear pillar.

    Also luv all the flatheads.

    All the 60-61 Fords that had that roofline are Starliners. Looks like the stars were removed when the rest of the trim got removed and the roof got a few inches off the top. Starliners were the "aerodynamic roofline" that Ford raced at NASCAR. Hard to picture these would stand up racing against what they use today.

    Wasn't paying attention in the early 60's. Didn't they cage them then? I know they were "stock", but - -

    Other than stripping all the fluff and lights and trim off and adding a roll cage and belts they were pretty much what you could order at a dealer. That's why it was called "stock car racing". Now I don't think there is a part on them that the factory makes.

    The name should be changed to "NANSCAR," the National Association of Nana's-Stock Car Auto Racing. Buncha grandmas wheeling 'round the track at 20 MPH, barely able to see over the steering wheel.
