Car description

So, what is a person to do?? Bandit trans am's are through the roof, and you can't be seen in a general lee reproduction without signing a waiver that you just really liked the show, and you aren't really making a racial statement.Well, here is an idea, get a totally street legal NASCAR reproduction!Actually, this was a Bobby Allison tribute car that was built for a charity raffle many years ago. It has had an easy going life. Sitting most of the time and coming out for shows, cars and coffee meet ups, and parades. With the car comes some Bobby Allision memorabilia, such as an autographed pic, a racing schedule and the winning raffle tickets. Pictured.Now, as a nostalgic blast from the past collectors item, it looks good sitting still, turns heads, and starts conversations. If you are familiar with his win starting from 33rd and working his way up to 1st in this thunderbird, I won't needlessly bore you with details.NOW, as a car, a daily driver, and a weekend cruiser. This 1978 Thunderbird with automatic and 351m it starts right up, drives and shifts really well and makes for even comfortable highway cruising. (70mph with no drama). Brakes work great! No vibration or pulling. Steering is tight and responsive. Suspension is classically floaty as you'd expect from a big hood thunderchicken. The lights, signals and brake lights all work, as well as the climate controls and fan selection. There is no compressor, but was an AC car.The headlight covers go up and down properly,The coolant and oil all stay where they are supposed to. Its been a very well cared for car. The wipers are about the only downfall, as the switch was removed. I have a new wiper motor and switch, and would love to install it and have it perfectly ready to go, but I am far too busy to get that done, and unfortunately can not even humor the idea. I never drove it in the rain anyway, and odds are most wont. There are a few spots that appear to be getting some rust, the door jamb corners, and very bottom of the wheel arches, nothing major, in fact the frame and body are super clean and solid. It has spent much of its life indoors.If you'd like I can arrange shipping, or if you are adventurous It'd be driveable anywhere as it sits! I have a driving video as well, just reach Bret @219*877*4922
