1959 Ford Thunderbird
This car is a “Survivor” which means it has been maintained since new and has never been restored.
I purchased this car in 2014 from a gentleman living in Lake of the Ozarks, Missouri. He found it in a barn. He had it repainted and got it back to driveable condition.
He owned this car for 25+ years. It was his “Baby” and no one drove it but him.
This car is all original except for the radio. He had upgraded the radio to one with a cassette player in it. Unfortunately, he didn’t retain the original radio.
This car has won a trophy at every Car Show it was entered into.
Engine is a 352 ci.
Transmission is Automatic “Cruise-a-matic as Ford called it”
Factory Dual Exhaust
Paint is Tahitian Bronze Metallic
Interior is Gold with white steering wheel and accents.
This car has every option available in 1959.
