1961 Ford ThunderbirdThis Thunderbird was a project car 20+ years ago by and father and son but when the father passed away the son lost interest and it sat in his garage for about 12 years. I bought it from them in 2007 replaced the exhaust manifold gaskets and a few other minor things but it's been sitting in storage ever since. The car does have a clear Minnesota title and it's being sold with no reserve so if you bid on the car it's going to be yours.
All the chrome and trim look to be in good condition, but this is definitely not a take it to the car show vehicle as it sits. It could used a new interior, The car does have surface rust, and some rust in the trunk but I could not find any spots where it was rusted though the metal. The car was undercoated somewhere along the way so that may have kept the body rust to a minimum
I last started and drove this car about 5 years ago but it's been stored in a shed since that time so it is NOT running at this time but it does roll freely and the engine does turn over soit may run with some clean gas, or after the fuel system has been cleaned out.
I do have the hubcaps and fender skirts for the car although they are not in the photos, and the rear seats are currently not installed but are pictured.
The odometer says somewhere around 65,000 but I do not assume that to be correct.
I also have many other 1961 Thunderbird parts available if you are interested but they do NOT come with the car.
