EXTERIORHas had body-off-frame paint job in Dupont Spectramaster Green, which is a more vibrant Aqua than the original Peacock Turquoise. Non metallic, but has a very nice quality in full sunlight. All stainless is there , except some has small dents, which I hope to have repaired. New weather seals fitted to all windows, new windscreen. Running body-matching, painted rims with Baby Moons and thin white walls.
INTERIORNeeds retrim as seats and headlining are trashed. Door trims poor. Patch panel in left rear floor and in forward right of trunk. I will reline with Dynamat and fit new carpets throughout. Plan to fit re-trimmed, after market bucket seats and console with floor shift for auto.
Fairly standard Marauder, which has had partial restoration.

GENERAL INFORMATION AND HISTORYOriginal owner drove it until 1976, parked it and was bought by second owner in 1989-90. This owner had access to a Pro-body shop and this is where the body work took place and mechanical refurb. Has been driven regularly, in some parades and small shows in Northern Wisconsin, with the Interior work still on-going. I found on the Internet while casually browsing in April 2008. Purchase completed in May and then it took until October to transport ( export ) to Australia. Only a handful of '63 Marauders are down here, so are even more rare by numbers than in their homeland. Its not concourse and it never will be, but its my Baby and I love it. I have a thing for early '60's U.S. cars. Life was just starting to get modern and the advancement and style of the Marauders was true to the day. Since I was a kid, I've been into Hot Rods, but when it came time to have one, it wasn't going to be a '32 Roadster, or a '57 Chevy. Mustangs have become a dime a dozen and really are just sporty Falcons ( Sorry Mustang lovers. ). I've become a big fan of the Super Rod and Custom trend, so this is what will eventually happen to Mikey.
