The VIN # on this Thunderbird verifies that it is indeed one of the 1427 Sports Roadsters ever built. The owner of the car is at least the second owner. It is currently stored in Carmel Valley, alifornia in a warehouse. The current owner has owned the car for over 20 years. It was recently prepared for a repaint, ut instead is now for sale as is. It is complete will all trim and interior parts.
The car starts, uns and stops. While idling, here is a knock in the engine thatdissipatesafter accelerating. I was not able to drive the car long enough to determine the condition of the transmission.
