1956 Ford Thunderbird
Let me start by stating that as you can see I am NOT A CAR DEALER. My father passed away nearly 4 years ago and we are slowly selling his wonderful lifetime collection. This car was purchased a few years before he died and has been sitting in the garage ever since. Sadly he got sick not to long after he purchased it. This is a beautiful specimen. I am certainly NOT going to write this description with the intent of making you believe this car is flawless BECAUSE IT IS NOT. IT IS A MAGNIFICENT 1956 FORD THUNDERBIRD CONVERTIBLE WITH BOTH TOPS AND ONE STUNNING INTERIOR. ALL 4 TIRES ARE LIKE NEW! With that being said THIS CAR IS FROM 1956-ITS OLD-ITS VINTAGE AND IT HAS SOME AGE-BUT LET ME TELL YOU-ITS A REAL BEAUTY! PLEASE LOOK AT MY PHOTOS AND READ THIS ENTIRE DESCRIPTION! The car has 93,694 original miles as shown on the dash. I HAVE A CLEAR TEXAS BLUE TITLE IN MY FATHERS NAME READY TO GO! I had this car towed right to my mechanic here in Sugarland Texas. It was not going in reverse. WE HAD THE ENTIRE TRANSMISSION REBUILT AND IT HAS A ONE YEAR WARRANTY WHICH I WILL GIVE THE NEW BUYER-ALL FLUIDS WERE CHANGED INCLUDING THE GASOLINE WHICH HAD BEEN SITTING. THE CONDENSER AND POINT WAS REPLACED-IGNITION COIL-RELAY AND STARTER-COOLANT HOSE(2)-THERMOSTAT-THERMOSTAT HOUSING GASKET-COOLANT FLUSH-AND THE RADIATOR HOSE WAS REPLACED. BRAND NEW BATTERY AS WELL. THIS CAR ONLY STARTS IN NEUTRAL! That is the way it was when my father purchased it as well:) I have all receipts in hand which I will also give to the new buyer. ALL POWER DOOR LOCKS-WINDOWS AND SEATS WORK PERFECTLY. Radio works as well. We were not able to get the air conditioner operating and to be honest I did NOT ask my mechanic to look at that. My main concern was making sure it was running well and ready to go. I would also be happy to give any potential buyer the name and number to my mechanic who just had the car and would be more than happy to answer any questions. Just send me a private email and I will give you that information. The car is beautiful. Its not perfect-it has minor issues here and there and has been sitting until about a month ago. The steering wheel will also need to be partially re-stitched as its a tad loose on a large portion of it(I have shown a photo). What I can say is with just a VERY LITTLE bit of TLC YOU HAVE ONE DROP DEAD GORGEOUS SHOW CAR THAT AS YOU CAN SEE FROM THE FRONT HAS ALREADY WON MANY SHOWS:) I also have the silver chrome pieces that you can change out if you are tired of the gold ones:) THE BUYER IS RESPONSIBLE FOR ALL SHIPPING CHARGES! THIS CAR WILL BE HELD 7 DAYS AND A $2500 DEPOSIT WILL BE REQUIRED VIA PAYPAL WITH THE REMAINING BALANCE DUE VIA CERTIFIED CASHIER'S CHECK ONLY WITHIN 7 DAYS OF THIS AUCTION ENDING! THIS CAR IS BEING SOLD AS-IS WITH NO WARRANTY! IT IS 64 YEARS OLD! Feel free to email me with any questions I did my very best in describing it for exactly what it is:) A beautiful vintage automobile. THE BLACK SOFT TOP IS LITERALLY IN NEW CONDITION! This is one MAGNIFICENT T-BIRD! YOU WILL BE ADMIRED ANYWHERE AND EVERYWHERE NO MATTER WHAT CAR IS NEXT TO YOU-I PROMISE YOURS WILL STAND OUT MORE:) Thank you and GOOD LUCK ITS A REAL BEAUTY! THIS CAR STARTS ON ONE CRANK AND DRIVES BEAUTIFULLY! I DO NOT BUTTER MY LISTINGS UP-THIS IS A REAL VINTAGE TREASURE! TRUST ME YOU WILL BE DELIGHTED WITH IT! THANK YOU!
