Ansen Equipped

Recommended Posts

I was looking through some old photos of the 63 Riviera I once owned. There was a decal in the windshield that was one that said it was "Ansen Equipped". I never asked the original owner what it had meant nor did I ever find anything really obvious what it could have been on the car while I owned it. No one I asked back then really knew what it was.

Can anyone help solve this old mystery for me?

Out of curiosity, I just typed Ansen into the ebay search window. Besides wheels, lot of other items showed up: steering wheels, transmission adapters, valve covers, finned aluminum oil pans, log intake manifolds for Ford 4-bangers, and a couple of decals just like the one shown in your picture. There's also an Ansen Speed catalog for sale. Sounds like they might have been the Mr. Gasket of their day. As I looked a some of the pictures, I seem to remember that the Ansen Sprint was one of the favorites of the Gasser crowd.

I'm guessing one of two things. 1) The car once upon a time had a set of Ansen wheels on it and over time they became a real chore to take care of or the owner wanted originality back, or 2) someone found a decal and thought it looked cool. I'm voting for the latter. :)
