Restored Thunderbird Roadster 292 V8 4bbl Automatic Air Conditioning Two Tops /// Originally owned by a Ford Motor Company Vice President, this first-year Thunderbird was displayed at many early Thunderbird showings throughout Canada and the United States. After roughly two years on the road, the car was shipped back to Dearborn where it was completely disassembled and factory restored. Fast forward a few decades, when it ended up in the hands of an enthusiastic Ford collector who eventually, over the... course of two years, conducted a second frame-off restoration. Circa 2005, a third owner acquired the freshly rebuilt gem and added it to his 10-car collection of meticulously garaged and maintained show queens. And this Ford's final two owners, respectively logged in 2008 and 2012, continued its tradition of low miles and excellent care. Tilt the hood and you'll find 292 cubic inches of dressed Thunderbird power that's been thoughtfully upgraded with a 12-volt electrical system. Behind that mill, a correct Ford-O-Matic 3-speed spins power to a sturdy 10-bolt axle. Turns come courtesy of lucid power steering. Braking is strong thanks to power-assisted drums. And at the corners, handsome Kelsey-Hayes wires spinFirestone FR721 whitewalls. Between the doors, a correct Black and Yellow interior creates an exciting yet classy driving environment. A power-operated seat is livable for years to come. Front and center, classy telemetry, cool climate control and modern, direct-fit audio look great plotted among engine-turned bezels. And in front of the driver, a glossy steering wheel spins a chrome horn ring around a telescoping column. A highly desirable drop-top that wraps well-maintained restoration around a storied V8 and a smooth 3-speed transmission, this slick T-Bird is the kind of classic that provides endless fun on the highway and celebrity status in the parking lot.
