Older repaint presents well, ome wear and chips in the paint can be found but overall it is in nice shape. Chrome and trim looks good, ome of the trim is dented but no signs of rust or cracking found. Convertible top is intact but to preserve the seal of the hardtop was not opened to determine condition.


Interior appears original and shows wear from use. Both sides of the seat have some split seams, ore on the passenger side. Some staining can be found on headliner but is not sagging. Doors show marks and staining. Carpet is worn, ostly on drivers side. Trunk below rubber mat shows some surface rust but no signs of rusting through. Replacement door panels are included with the car and are in usable shape.


Engine starts easily and idles well. A slight hesitation can occur when accelerating from lower RPMs. Gauges appear to be working correctly, lock is unfortunately not working. Radio and seat adjustment also not working. Overdrive is not working either, uspect an electrical issue, verdrive pull out works as it should.

The owner of this Thunderbird received the car from a family member who purchased the car new.It has lived its life in California and such, he body shows no rust.
