1959 Ford Thunderbird LOW MILEAGE ORIGINAL SOUTHWEST CAR SINCE NEW1959 Ford Thunderbird Convertible -
Up for auction is this beautiful freshly restored 1959 Ford Thunderbird convertible. It is a stock original 71,300 mile dry South West car that just came out of a lengthy storage in Arizona. The original owners purchased this Thunderbird at Bob Wondries Ford dealership in Alhambra in Southern California. They then moved to Colorado where they sold it several years later to their friends. It remained with the second owners for decades, always cared for and garaged until, due to their advanced age, they recently decided to let it go to a new home.
Only 10,261 convertible Thunderbirds were made in 1959 and this one is an exceptional example. It is in clean beautiful condition, with an accident free straight as an arrow and solid rust-free South West body. It has stunning new factory correct black paint with clear coat. The original pot metal trim and chrome is in incredible original non-pitted condition! The stainless is bright and both bumpers front and rear sport original chrome and are near perfect. The factory wheel covers are New Old Stock and perfect.
This T-Bird has a beautiful new convertible top in the original black color, all new convertible top seals and related deck lid seals. The power top works perfectly with a new motor/pump and hoses. The factory original interior is in very good condition with some minor touch-ups where necessary and new carpeting. The trunk has a complete new panel, tire cover, and mat set and looks great. The underside of the deck lid and the door jams are still the factory original paint and in very nice condition. Included is a high-end flannel lined custom car cover that fits like a glove and protects the stunning black paint.
This nicely optioned T-Bird has the 352 cubic inch V8 with the optional dual range Cruise-O-Matic automatic transmission, power steering, power windows, and power top. Mechanically, this `59 Thunderbird is a sound low mileage car that runs strong and drives well. The automatic transmission shifts smoothly. All mechanical components have been replaced or rebuilt to insure safe and dependable driving: radiator, water pump, hoses, belts, starter, carburetor, fuel pump, fuel tank, shocks, front suspension, and complete new brake system. It has been completely serviced; new fluids, complete tune up, and it has a brand new set of factory correct size B.F. Goodrich Silvertown bias ply tires.
This is a beautiful, freshly restored, low mileage Thunderbird convertible. It has always been cared for, is striking in triple black, is nicely optioned, and is mechanically dependable – just ready to cruise and enjoy!
