1955 T Bird found stored in a garage in CA since 1976. Approximately 84K believed original miles. 292 V8 with manual trans. I topped up the cylinders with Marvel and waited a week or so while I installed new Canadian gas tank, sender, ines, uel and water pump, ptima battery, ew coil, ires, oints etc. and it started right up. No smoke and smooth idle. Clutch is fine and drives very nice.New Paul’s chrome bumpers, estored hardtop with stand, ew soft top in the box, ew door panels complete (not installed), ew radial tires, 56 trunk mat, lus lot of misc chrome parts and handles.
One minor rust spot inside rear quarter filler pane, ot visible from outside (see picture). No other rust that I could find and never had patch panels or rust repair!
This car needs some weekend tlc assembly such as the door panels, urn signal lights, eat mechanism, oft top kit installed ( have how to video ) and it is ready for the road. Could use a detailing or paint to really shine! Car is a 10 footer.
All included in the sale plus a jack and original era spare tire. I believe I have every part except radio antenna and one interior dog leg panel.
