“A personal luxury car of distinction”. She is a show stopper to say the least and at the few shows she’s gone to she has ALWAYS placed either best of show or best of class! E.g. 6 years in a row she’s been Best of Show at the prestigious St. Petersburg Yacht Club Vintage motor Classic. Thunderbirds of this quality range in the $70K+, from the show finish to the clinically clean engine bay, interior and Undercarriage she stands out. Pictures were taken within the last 30days. No expense has been spared in maintenance and the details on this gem. This car has NEVER EVER been driven in the rain/drizzle/damp/ dirt road or even a puddle since restoration! She is an absolute cream puff and has been babied in every way! 1x times a year she is professionally detailed with a 3stage finish, then a refresher wax/polish every 2-3 months. To give you a measure of the quality of the car we’ve already had offers from Classic car dealers and a well renowned Thunderbird builder within the last 60 days! I am the vice President of ‘Classic Thunderbird of Tampa Bay’ and have seen many Birds over the years, very few can measure to her standards! She will be at the Classic Thunderbirds Club International National Convention in Sarasota if you want a close up.

She drives smoothly and shifts seamlessly, always starts on the first crank, no fumes or smoke and only has only been fed ethanol free gas. You can, without hesitation, drive her across the U.S., however if that’s your plan she will not be sold to you! The engine is a rebuilt Y-Block V8 Holly 4bbl that connects to a Ford-O-Matic 3 speed transmission. She also has power brakes and ultra-smooth power steering. The interior was completely restored and comes with vintage AC that blows ICE COLD! The interior shows as new or even better and all gauges work perfectly. She does have seal belts (red) and they are in excellent condition. The car is straight, has excellent gaps and NO misaligned hood, doors & trunk like so many other. The typical problem areas on these cars, floors, trunk bed, firewall, Intake ducts all are not only rust free but are immaculate, glossy and waxed! The undercarriage is Colonial white offset by a gloss black frame that is show quality (Note: NO under seal! so you can see how clean she actually is!!!) EVERYTIME she’s on a lift for an oil change other customers and tech’s take pictures of her beautiful undercarriage! All of the trim and chrome are of high a quality finish. Glass is factory tinted blue in excellent condition as are the seals. Door, trunk, soft top seals are all perfect and everything opens and closes smoothly and symmetrically. The soft-top is tuxedo black without a speck of dust on it, fits tight like a drum and the accompanying frame is high gloss black and perfect in every way as are all the chrome latches, it all folds perfectly hidden behind the seat. There are no dents, scratches, fading, and the car has a wet look luster which is hard to achieve with a white car. Upgrades: The original vacuum powered wipers have been upgraded to electric. Stainless steel exhaust system. Adjustable air struts in the rear. New Kelsey-Hayes wire wheels that are ‘white glove’ perfect wrapped in Coker white wall tires. She has the ‘parade’ cooling package with a hidden thermostatically controlled electric fan, original look painted aluminum radiator and a 6 blade stainless fan (98deg weather and she’s purring). Dry air filter conversion. Pertronix Ignition. Electric fuel pump with under dash cut off switch. Battery trickle charge tether. Vintage AM/FM/Cassette Thunderbird radio. Has the back up light feature on this Bird. Chrome dress band added to continental wheel. Note: There is small unnoticeable 1.5" bend in the passenger side front fender inner lip which caused the paint crack when a body guy tried to 'flare' the fender to stop the wheel from rubbing slightly when you lock hard right while going up a driveway, because Coker white walls are a little wider than the Bias Plys. We never got round to fix it as you cant see unless on your knees and it at the top shows she still places 1st.

She comes an original porthole hardtop that’s is good condition and only needs a lite restore (seals/paint). Also comes with a very ingenious inflatable CarCapsule (see picture) and a $400 Noah car cover. Also Owners handbook, years of Earlybird magazines, trophies, Shop Manual, 3 manila files totaling about 4 inches thick of records, Model 1:18 scale T-Birds, memorabilia, spare parts, old parts, etc…
