DEARBORN, Mich. - Remember the old saying, “Like Father, Like Son?” Well, you could say that’s the case when it comes to Keir Anufrijevas’ fondness for Fords. The Denver resident sent us an email to show us a set of classic Fords that he‘s restored – a 1964 Galaxie 500, and then his father’s 1966 F-100 pickup to match. Read his note to us below to hear how the apple hasn’t fallen far from the tree:
“Hello, Ford Performance! My Name is Keir Anufrijevas and I'm from Denver, Colorado. I think that you should feature my matching set of Fords that I have restored. The first one is a 1964 Ford Galaxie 500. It has the Thunderbird 390 V-8 and a 4-speed manual, and still has its original interior.
“The second vehicle I restored is my dad’s old 1966 F-100. It has the original 352 engine, but I painted it Guardsman Blue with a Skylight Blue hardtop to match the Galaxie
“I love Fords because my dad always had Mustangs and Ford trucks in our family and today my everyday driver is a 2011 Ford F-150 Lariat with the EcoBoost engine.
“Thanks for putting my Fords in your Fan Spotlight!”
