Oh my god I think I'm in love. This car is absolutely stunning, you really have to see it in person to fully appreciate it. The body was off the frame for a total restoration.

EXTERIOR: Amazing fit and finish. This paint job is going on twenty years old and it looks like it just rolled out of the best body shop. It is absolutely laser straight, straight as a rifle, straight as an arrow and whatever other term you can think of. The body panels fit square. The custom colors are gorgeous- Aqua Pearl metallic and bluegreen metallic. We have the codes, they are Dupont Chromabase. The metal flake is light laid out perfectly and the clear coat looks wet. It's polished like a mirror. Every single piece of exterior chrome and trim has been redone. We're talking bumpers, grill, bezels, hood ornament, dual mirrors etc. All the stainless trim down the sides, around the windows and the basket handle across the roof has all been professionally straightened and polished. In back the dual exhaust comes right through the bumper. It has a continental kit, rear mount antenna and a glass roof. It has the Thunderbird emblem on the fenders designating what's under the hood. Reproduction 15x7 rims, new hubcaps and Firestone whitewall tires. All the glass is real clear. Door jambs are slick as the outside. Weather strips were all replaced. The little lights in the door jambs actually work.

INTERIOR: It is just as gorgeous inside as it is outside. As a matter of fact that chrome stainless basket handle trim that goes over the roof also goes across the headliner. Down on the floor is excellent carpet with a Hurst 3 speed shifter sticking out of it. It has a complete upholstery kit including seats, door panels, armrest and headliner. All the metal trim is painted as nice as the outside. Everything on the dash looks new. The gauges, knobs, heater control panel etc. Below the dash it has oil and amp gauges. Classic Auto Radio Service converted the original radio to a FM stereo. The car was rewired with EZ wiring and has a 12 circuit fuse block. Also upgraded with an Ididit chrome tilt column. New glove box liner with owners manual. Dome light works.

ENGINE COMPARTMENT: It has a performance rebuilt 312 motor with custom tri-power carbs on top, we have the receipts. It has Interceptor heads, roller timing chain, Comp cam and aluminum Ross pistons. The intake is polished aluminum. The air cleaners and valve covers are finned with painted inserts. It has a Unilite distributor, Malory coil and 1 wire alternator. with power brake system with dual reservoir master. The battery is properly bolted down. It's a 12 volt conversion. Modern power steering system. The metal is smooth and painted.

TRUNK COMPARTMENT: Completely restored, painted the color of the car. It has a reproduction mat, side panels, rear seat divider and weatherstrip. It also has matching restored rim with a matched reproduction whitewall tire that's never been used. It includes a car cover and a box of owner's manuals.

UNDERSIDE: The body was taken off the frame and it was meticulously restored underneath. The entire chassis was taken apart and rebuilt. All new bushings, front end is all rebuilt. It has lowering springs, new shocks. Upgraded with a rack and pinion steering. Rebuilt brakes with disc in the front, e-brake assembly is hooked up. New fuel tank, and electric pump. It has a 3-speed transmission with overdrive. Replaced flywheel and clutch. Rebuilt driveshaft. Rebuilt rear end with 4.10 gears. Under body is painted blue like the car. The chassis is gloss black.

This is a beautiful car that will make you feel good owning it. Just looking at it is satisfying, driving it will make your day!

I, Jay Grams, take pride in personally writing the descriptions for virtually every car for about the last 30 years now. A significant amount of effort goes into fact checking. What I am offering is my professional impression of the vehicle.

Our salesmen are happy to assist with descriptions and making sure your questions are answered. One great suggestion is letting us do a walk around video that explains the car's condition in detail.
