Though Roland Tittle remembers a few of these 1960 Ford Starliners from his senior year in high school (his best friend had one, too), the hot rodder looked all over the western United States (from California to Utah) before finding the right one to build, or so he thought. He says it was misrepresented on eBay and he knew the jig was up when he found street signs riveted in place under the Bondo! Undeterred, Roland continued with the rebirth of his Starliner, which took a little more than a year to complete after he dropped the car off at Hot Rods & Custom Stuff for a total rebuild.

Hot Rods & Custom Stuff modified the chassis to accommodate the Mustang II sub-frame with independent front suspension and a power rack-and-pinion setup. Airbags from RideTech are on each corner, as are 12-inch Wilwood drilled and slotted disc brakes and Bilstein shocks. Out back a Ford 9-inch (assembled with a 3.73:1 ratio and 31-spline axles) was installed with a four-link and Panhard bar.
