A later AM/FM cassette stereo has been installed. The steering wheel is a smaller diameter classic unit. The dash is optional padded. The door panels are in excellent condition as well as the dash and instrument bright work & faces.

The original trim plate is intact and legible. The aluminum radiator is specific to 1st generation Thunderbirds and does it's job well.
