    Looks like the same car that Carl Weir
    and Joel Walters raced in the first two
    or three Baja 1,000 races nearly 50 years
    ago. Weir and Walters took a car similar
    to this one and modified it to compete
    off road against the newer dune buggies
    and 4X4 offerings by Ford and GM at that time. Called the “Baja Phantom”,
    the car became a familiar sight at early
    off road races around the off road circuit. If you want to know more, you
    can find it in a feature article in the December 1970 issue of Rod & Custom
    Magazine or Peterson Publication’s 1973 issue of The Big Ford Book.

    Looks like a similar car that was modified to compete in the Baja 1,000
    50 years ago. Carl Weir and Joel Walters took a basket case car like this one and turned it into the Baja Phantom,
    one of the most off beat Baja cars you’d
    ever see. After the car was finished the
    pair would take the old Ford “ghost towning” on weekends. That’s when the
    idea hit them to enter the car in the first
    Mexican 1,000 in ’68 or ’69. First time the car was photographed in the race was 1970. Cartoonist Dave Deal painted a cartoon on the right side of the roof showing the Grim Reaper poking a sythe through an AMC sedan
    which poked some fun at AMC’s effort
    to enter off road racing. The car later
    showed up in a multi page article in the
    December 1970 issue of Rod & Custom
    Magazine and was later featured in the
    1973 issue of the Big Ford Book sold by
    Peterson Publications. After that, no more was heard or seen of the car again. It made for a great story back then and the only question is where is
    it now.

    This actually looks like a nice old Ford. I think asking price is fair, but the buyer needs to remember, it is a four door and a 36 Ford and not the most desirable early Ford.

    Nice car I hope it gets saved and rebuilt but the price is too dear for a four door for most of us. Was probably worth more 25 – 30 years ago. And that trend continues as the fans for these croak off.

    With some subtle mods and all in one piece this could be a fun weekend cruiser. It’s got enough “style” to be different, 4 doors and all.

    Nice looking old Ford. What hurts saleing any old vehicle now. Is the cost of shipping it buy truck. You,d be better off driving their and towing it back home. The price of the old 4 doors are coming up-since the old 2 door are harder to find. I like it and wished it was mine.o
