Beverly and Terry Bryant are no strangers to Ford. In fact, ALL of their daily drivers – and toys – wear the Blue Oval from Ford. You might even say that they bleed Ford Blue. This 1960 Starliner is something that evokes memories of Beverly’s childhood and the car her family drove way back when. Fast-forward to 2018 and she has her “Dreamliner”, built by Walton Customs, Cato’s Custom Upholstery, Hammerfab & PAINTHOUSE. It features a Ford Coyote crate engine & 6R80 overdrive transmission, a state-of-the-art chassis, custom-dyed leather interior and a unique custom-made shade of blue pearl paint. All of this is tastefully packaged in a timeless body style that just gets better with age. It is safe to say that Beverly’s wish has come true, only in this case the reality is actually better than the dream!
