1965 Ford Thunderbird convertible

My elementary school teacher had a new 1965 Tbird and since that point I had to have one. 17 years ago I bought this one in Miami and I have the original invoice verifying it was sold new in Miami in 1965. Very solid underbody, having sent most of its life in Florida. Factory 390 engine, power steering, power brakes, automatic transmission, power windows with power vent windows (very rare), factory AIR CONDITIONING, power seat, power antenna. Aftermarket stereo cassette player. Was originally blue with a white interior, now yellow with black interior. Interior in very good condition. Exterior paint a "6" (out of 10) lacquer is shiny and smooth but there some chips that have been touched up. Chrome is shiny and in great condition. Tires have less than 100 miles.
Engine runs very well, transmission shifts smoothly, brakes perform flawlessly (front has factory disk brakes). Top goes up and down as it should and is excellent condition (has a small patch). All mechanicals work with exception of the windshield washer (needs switch) and the original clock (points need to be filed). Service manuals and info books included as pictured.
Car has been in a climate controlled garage for the past 17 years and has been very well cared for. Inspections are welcomed. Buyer is responsible for shipping Any questions please call me at 813 774 2179. Car is sold as is with no warranties. I have a clear NC title and will need $500 deposited in my Paypal account 48 hours after sale, balance due in certified check or wired funds within 7 days. I have the car for sale locally at $19,500 and may end the auction at any time. Hagerty Classic Car Evaluation Tool rates this car a "3" at a value of $23,500, therefore based on its condition I believe this vehicle is priced fairly.
This car is a great cruiser and has been a lot of fun but my age dictates I reduce the number of my toys.
