Edison Ford Antique Car Restoration Project Continues
June 13, 2012
In the past few years, the automotive department of South Fort Myers High School has successfully completed a very unique new restoration program to several of the antique car collection of Edison Ford. In the upcoming months, they will undertake restoration of the 1929 Model A which has been moved to a secure garage bay at the high school site.
The project is under the direction of the Edison Ford curatorial staff and Jim Moss, Automotive Faculty at South Fort Myers High School. So far, the completed cars include the 1917 Model T Truck which is on display in the garage by the Ford house and the 1937 Ford Coupe which is on display at Page Field Airport.
Retired school superintendent, former principal and Edison Ford Tour Historian, Bud McKendrick, has been involved since the beginning and sees great value in the students’ learning about basic engines and also in their follow up involvement as volunteers at the Edison Ford for auto events and programs. We agree and thank Jim, Bud, our curatorial staff and the regional car clubs and projects which provide financial support.
