"Surprised" This was my oldest brothers 1st car, he sold it in 1968 and I last saw it in 1972, I just spotted it in town at a tire shop for the first time in 49 years.

Now THAT is a great story! I bet you freaked out!  :d     Only ONCE have I ever spotted a former vehicle of mine.

If I was you I would be very motivated to try buying it and restore it.

I once owned a semi-restored '88 Bronco with a $5,000 paint job on it.  (I bought it that way). 

 

A couple of years after I sold it I saw it and chased it down the street and lost it in traffic.  Never saw it again.  Still got my eye out for it.

@chris It even has the same original vinyl roof and a vinyl hood stripe that my Uncle John put on to make the car unique, both in almost perfect condition with out cracking

Amazing! That Ford is personal rolling history. What a treat to be able to transverse time.
