Absolutely gorgeous. Take a second and look at the sleak lines. This one is even better with great colors and it's loaded with accessories. Easy to drive with an automatic, power steering and air conditioning. Restored to show quality.

EXTERIOR: These Crown Victoria are one of the sharpest cars of that era. The body has no rust or damage, looking down each side it is absolutely straight. The panels fit square and flush. It has optional fender skirts and a painted continental kit. It is repainted in it's original colors- Peacock blue and colonial white. The paint is very smooth and glossy. Upfront all the chrome is excellent. The Thunderbird emblems on the fenders designate the special motor that's under the hood. The stainless moldings running down the sides, around the windows and the basket handle across the roof are straight and polished. The accessory dual mirrors, rocker moldings, stone shields and rear antenna looks like new. In back the tail lights, trim and bumper look new. The dual exhaust tips come right through the bumper. All the glass looks new except rear window which is excellent. New gaskets and weatherstrips. It rolls on Goodyear radial white wall tires with optional basket style wire hubcaps.

INTERIOR: It is really beautiful inside this car. Matching turquoise and white like the exterior. The dash in front of me is gorgeous, all the metal trim inside is painted smooth and glossy. The knobs, chrome and steering wheel look new. The original radio was sent out and fitted with modern internals making it an Fm stereo. An air conditioner is neatly mounted below the dash. Down on the floor it has sound deadener and turquoise carpet with matching floor mats. The seats are reupholstered white with the turquoise fabric inserts. Door panels are replaced with reproduction. The visors and headliner were replaced. It has the same chrome trim inside as on the roff. The glove box liner is new, kick panels are new.

ENGINE COMPARTMENT: It has the Thunderbird Special motor under the hood. A 292-202 hp with original tea pot 4 barrel carb. It features power steering and air conditioning has been neatly added. The 12 volt battery is bolted down properly. Everything looks neat, clean and orderly. The wiring harness looks like it's been replaced.

TRUNK COMPARTMENT: This trunk is beautiful. It has a new grey plaid mat, seat divider and weatherstrip. The metal is solid, painted white. It has a blue rim and a white wall tire for a spare. It also has a jack assembly.

UNDERSIDE: It appears to be proper. The floors look solid. The front end is not brand new but it looks like it's been redone. Shocks, swaybar, bushings and power steering ram look recent. It has new air shocks in back. Upgraded dual exhaust with Flowmaster mufflers. Looking up at the motor and the Ford-o-matic trans, they are both clean.

I've already said it a few times but it deserves me saying it again: This car is gorgeous! It has a very nice restoration, inside and out look practically new.

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.
