This Thunderbird is all original except for new seat covers, side door panels, and rug. It never had a frame off restoration. It still has the original 6 volt power system. If you are looking for a basically unmodified Tbird in excellent condition, this one is it.
The car was repainted about 10 years ago but is still in excellent condition. There is no orange peel, alligator cracking, door dings, or scratches in the finish.
The engine was completely rebuilt. The brakes, tires, transmission are also in excellent condition. It drives well and attracts a lot of attention. I do not have the soft top for it. All the chrome is in excellent condition with no scratches, blemishes, or bad spots. The radio, clock, tachometer and heater are in working order. It has power steering, brakes, windows and seat.
I guess you could classify this car as a "3" or better. The car was never in an accident and has not needed to have any body repair work. The mileage is 57898 which I was told by previous owner to be actual.
I have owned it for about seven years but health issues require me to sell it. I bought it from a gentlemen in Buffalo, New York who bought it from the original owner who won it in a raffle in Canada. It has never been driven in snow or salt and there are no rust replacements or issues. The title is clear and is issued by the state of Minnesota.The VIN # is P5FH184315.
