I AM A BIG SHELBY FAN HONESTLY I WAS GOING TO PULL THE DRIVE LINE FOR A SHELBY CLONE. HOWEVER UPON RESEARCHING THIS CAR I FELT PERHAPS THIS BIG BIRD SHOULD FLY AGAIN SO HERE SHE IS. I KNOW VERY LITTLE ABOUT T-BIRDS AND WILL TRY TO DESCRIBE HER AS BEST AS I CAN.
I CALLED FOR A MARTI REPORT UNFORTUNATELY MARTI DOES NOT HAVE COMPUTER RECORDS BEFORE 1967HOWEVER THEY DO HAVE A BUNCH OF FORD INVOICES FOR MANY 66 FORD VEHICLES.AS SEEN IN THE SECOND PICTURE MARTI DID HAVE THE ORIGINAL FORD ORDER SHEET FOR THIS CAR LISTING ALL OF THE OPTIONS ON THIS BABY. WOW THIS IS INDEED A VERY RARE BIRD !!!!! AND AN AWESOMEFIND !
STARTING WITH A 428 V-8 WHICH RUNS SMOOTH STARTS RIGHT UP AT THE FLICK OF THE KEY SMOKES A LITTLEPROBABLY FROM SITTING FOR SUCH A LONG TIME. YES I HAVE THE ORIGINAL KEY AND SHE IS RUNNING OFF THE GAS TANK. INTERIOR IS CERTAINLY ALL THERE !!! AND LOOKS PRETTY DARN GOOD.
PURCHASED FROM THE ORIGINAL OWNER WHO BOUGHT THE CAR NEW I HAVE A COPY OF THE ORIGINAL TITLE SHOWING 2 MILES ! ON TITLE !
OWNER STATED THAT THIS BIRDS STILL HAS THE ORIGINAL MOTOR AND IT'S BEEN SITTING IN HIS GARAGE FOR A LONG TIME AND HE RECENTLY HAD THINGS DONE TO IT SO HE COULD SELL IT. HE ADDED A NEW EXHAUST SYSTEM AND NEW ALUMINUM RADIATOR. HE SAY'S HE SPENT $1,100 FOR ALL.
ORIGINAL OWNER (92 YRS OLD) CLAIMS HE WAS HAVING CAR RESTORED A LITTLE AT A TIME IN HIS GARAGE BUY SOME YOUNG GUYS. THEY GOT THE CAR TO WHERE YOU SEE IT NOW.
SPEEDOMETERREADS 23,000mi I WOULD SAY MECHANICAL LIMITS SO REALLY 123,000miTRANSMISSION HAS A MODULATOR LEAK NOT A BIG DEAL CERTAINLY NOT AN EXPENSIVE REPAIR.
NEAT THINGS ABOUT THE CAR AS SHOWN ON THE FORD ORDER SHEET !
428 MOTOR AUTO C-6 TRANS LIMITED SLIP DIFFERENTIAL POWER WINDOWS WITH POWER VENT WINDOWS ! POWER DRIVERS SEAT HIGHWAY PILOT CONTROL VERY RARE CRUISE CONTROL CONTROLS ARE IN THE STEERING WHEEL ! 8 TRACK TAPE DECK ! AIR CONDITIONING NOT ALL THERE SOME PARTS ARE IN THE TRUNK POWER STEERING POWER DISC BRAKES "UNIQUE STEERING WHEEL" SWAY AWAY STEERING COLUMN (SOMETHING I HAVE NEVER SEEN BEFORE) DECK LID RELEASE SELECTAIRE CONDITIONER AM RADIO/STERIOSONIC TAPE SYSTEM POWER RETRACTING ANTENNA TINTED GLASS
FLOORS ARE NOT BAD AND DO NOT NEED ANY MAJOR REPAIRS OR REPLACEMENT. MAYBE SOME PINHOLES HERE AND THERE. THIS CAR HAS SPENT MOST OF ITS LIFE IN A GARAGE.THE WORST OR UGLIESTPART THAT I COULD FIND ON THE CAR IS IN THE TRUNK THERE IS A RUST HOLE UP ABOVE THE GAS TANK RIGHT BEHIND THE SEAT IT'S KINDA HARD TO UNDERSTAND WHY IT WOULD RUST IN THAT SPOT. REGARDLESS IT'S NOT STRUCTURAL NOT FIND ABLEUNLESS YOU PULL THE TRUNK CARPETING OFF. I'M MENTIONING THIS BECAUSE THE REST OF THE UNDERCARRIAGEIS AMAZINGLY CLEAN.
VIN NUMBER HAS BEEN LOCATED IN 3 PLACES FRONT AREA BY HOOD LATCH IT WAS HARD TO READ WE CLEANED IT AND COLOREDIT SO IT WOULD SHOW UP IN THE PICTURES. VIN UP IN THE COWEL AREA BELOW THE WINDSHIELD AND THE VIN ON THE DOOR PLATE. ALL SHOWN IN THE PICTURES.

MAKE NO MISTAKE ABOUT IT THIS IS NOT A PAINT AND GO. THIS IS A RESTORATION PROJECTI AM MAKING NO CLAIMS BEYOND THE FACT THAT SHE WILL RUN AND DRIVE AND STOP. SHE'S BEEN GARAGED FOR TOO LONG

IF IT DIDN'THAVE SO MANY OPTIONS AND SUCH A NICE INTERIOR I'D BE PULLING THE 428 ENGINE AND DROPPING IT INTO A 67 SHELBY GT-500

FOR SALE LOCALLY AND I'M ON THE FENCE ABOUT KEEPING THE ENGINE
LOCATED IN NORTHERN NJ 25 MIN OUTSIDE OF NYC EMAIL ME TO COME SEE IT.

WILL WORK WITH SHIPPING AND FOR $200 EXTRA I CAN TOW THIS TO THE SHIPPING YARDS IN ELIZABETH NJ. BUT BUYER PAYS ALL SHIPPING FEES AND HANDLES ALL PAPERWORK. LAST CAR I SOLD WENT TO FRANCE I BELIEVE THE BUYER PAID 1200 FOR THE SHIPPING TO EUROPE.
RELISTED DUE TO A NON PAYING BIDDER WHO CLAIMED HE HAD NO IDEA HOW MUCH IT WOULD COST TO SHIP FROM NYC AREA TO CALIFORNIA. FOR THOSE WHO NEED TO KNOW IT'S $1,100 - $1,200 FOR AN OPEN TRAILER. AND I DO HAVE A RECOMMENDEDSHIPPER AS I RECENTLY SENT A MUSTANG FASTBACK OUT TO CA.

THIS IS A NO RESERVE AUCTION SO BID AND BID TO WIN !
