1965 Ford Thunderbird
This is a 1965 Ford Thunderbird Special Landau. I purchased it in California and have owned since 1998. It has been garagedwith very little driving. As you can see by the picture,it does not have the original wheels or hubcaps; instead, t has Zenith rims with Vogue tires.The new paint, heinteriorseats (no rips or tears),the custom door trim,and the headlinerwere completed redone in2001. It has a cd changer under the arm rest, ith infinity speakers andRockford Fosgate amps and speakers in the trunk (currently a fuse or wiring issue). The engine was taken out in 2002 and blue print balanced (Edelbrock Carburetor), nd currently runs fine- though you can tell it needs a tune up. It has sat in my garage in Atlanta, eorgiafor the last 4 years, hough I have started it every so often and driven it in my neighborhood. The electrical is fine; both passenger / driver windows are operable. The drivers side smaller vent window does not operate via the motor. Rear vent windows operate, s well. I have purchased, ut have not installed the new window moldings - which are dry and cracking. Installed Ford Factory A/C unit5 years ago, hich still blows super cold. I never had the transmission rebuilt, he brakes redone, r the steering adjusted-- these are really the only three areas I never got around to doing. IT IS BEING SOLD AS-IS.
I have a thick folder full of every receipt and purchase for this vehicle-- over 10k in receipts (including engine blue print balance).
Minor scuffs on drivers side door; small chipped paint on hood lock. Tires have been on the car since 2001 and have good tread, ut probably need to be replaced to be a daily driver due to age and possible tire rot. Sold AS-IS. NO WARRANTY, XPRESSED OR IMPLIED.
I do have the title; it is free and clear. Gated community. Must have two forms of identification if going to purchase. WILL BE ADDING MORE PICTURES OF INTERIOR AND ENGINELATER TONIGHT.
