Classic 1963 Ford Thunderbird Convertible

- Clear Title & Current Registration

In short I’ve done a lot of restoration, maintenance and kept things original. Convertible top, electrics, dash gauges, lights, heater, nearly everything works smoothly and is reliable. Has original paint and upholstery. Restoration is approx. 85-90% complete.This little car really is in nice shape, all work/ restoration has been performed by a mechanic with 35+ years experience.
