This car has lived it's life in Texas and has never had rust to contend with. Clear Texas Title.
1961 Thunderbird with thousands already spent to make it a great restoration. The car was repainted in it's original Diamond Blue. The paint and body are excellent (no scratches or dings) although the pictures were taken after sitting for 3 years. 5 brand new radials with period correct white walls. All the tires hold air however the right rear has a slow leak likely from the stem. All body parts are there and in good shape including the rear fender skirts, headlights, and hub caps. All of the glass is in excellent shape, as are the window motors, etc.
This was a high dollar restoration. Most of the chrome was replated. All of the chrome and stainless is in excellent shape. The engine, Z Code (390 4 Barrel 300hp) was removed and rebuilt prior to being parked. The engine has seen little use since the rebuild. Car ran and drove well prior to being parked. Transmission, front end, etc, have all been gone through.
The car was stored inside until last year when it was moved to where you see it now. It has always been in a covered area. The car was parked to start the interior restoration. The seats were removed to be recovered and that was all that was done to them. The seats are present. All the interior chrome was sent out and re-chromed. There are duplicates of many items many of which are NOS. Interior and the rest of the entire car is there and complete. There are several boxes of new and re-chromedparts that go with the car. There are no new seat covers so they would have to be purchased however they are readily available. The factory interior color is "Light Blue Metallic trim #24" the front and back seat interior covers are $585 from Mac. The steering wheel and dash are in good shape. If you figured a thousand dollars for the all the work including interior cost, you should be more than covered.
The exterior will need the hub caps resinstalled ( hub caps are included), The rear fender skirts reinstalled (they too are included) and a Good Washing.
Basically you are looking at a project that has had all the major work done just waiting for the interior to be put back in it. Again, the car is complete. Lot's of money has been spent on this beauty.
