This is Tom's second Moulin Rouge Road Runner. In the Spring of 1970 Tom ordered a new FM3 Road Runner hardtop from Mason Motors in Excelsior, Minnesota. The car was ordered with a 383 4bbl, column-shifted 727 automatic transmission, black bucket seat interior and no vinyl top. He had the dealer add a black vinyl top at delivery because he thought at the time it was a LITTLE too colorful. See below for photos of Tom's original car.
